INDIANA REVIEW, Summer & Fall 2014

Internship in Editing and Publishing

Undergraduate English majors are eligible to serve as editorial interns for Indiana Review, a national literary journal that publishes innovative poetry and fiction. Three positions will be available for the summer semester and four positions will be available for the fall semester. Students who serve as interns gain experience in the publication of the magazine, including manuscript selection, the handling of subscriptions, local and national publicity, coordinating with contributing writers, and other aspects of publishing. Please note in your application and on your resume any experience with computers, software, and web design. The Web and Publicity Interns’ duties include: creating and updating advertisements, creating and maintaining blog content as well as various social media sites. Indiana Review is especially interested in applicants with web and design experience and those who are familiar with Wordpress, Photoshop, and/or InDesign. An intern is expected to work a total of approximately 120 hours — that equals eight hours per week in the fall semester, for instance — and is eligible for up to three hours of course credit in English L498. An intern is eligible to apply for a modest grant from the Honors College.

To be eligible for this internship, you must have a GPA of 3.0 or better and must have 12 credits in English at the 200-level or above, including L202 or L260. If you are interested in serving, send a letter of application to Ed Comentale, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of English, Ballantine Hall 442, by the deadline specified below. In the letter you should mention any previous experience in journalism or publishing, your course work in English, your reasons for being interested in the internship, and a short statement about what type of fiction and poetry you read, offering (by name) a few examples. We would prefer to select practicing writers, if possible, but anyone who is seriously interested in the magazine should apply. Please also list your class standing, campus address, email address, telephone number, and student ID number. The final selection of interns will be made by the editor of Indiana Review.
