Available Undergraduate and Graduate Internships:
Publication, Marketing, and Program Interns (ongoing)
San Diego Writers, Ink, a literary arts nonprofit focused on creative writing instruction, publishing, and literary events, seeks motivated individuals to join its team as publication, marketing, and program interns. These unpaid interns will assist in SDWI operations so as to match intern professional development and interests. Publication assistance may involve logging submissions, acting as first readers, and helping with promotional events, such as A Year in Ink’s release party at the Cygnet Theatre, as well as with the SDWI web site (www.sandiegowriters.org), which includes regular content as well as articles and interviews. Program support may involve being on site to help instructors with registration and evaluations. Interns may have the option of participating in courses or observing them. Graduate students may help develop instructor resources, online course templates, and special topic programs such as conferences or salons.
Required qualifications include current college registration (undergraduate or graduate), strong writing and communication skills, attention to detail, experience with Microsoft Office programs, willingness to work at least 10 hours a week (on a flexible schedule; some office hours required and greater time commitment and task flexibility is possible with graduate students) for at least three months. Familiarity with social media and a love of literature and education are essential. Preferred qualifications include formal training in marketing and social media, graphic design, Adobe Illustrator, photography and video editing, and/or other unique skills SDWI can help interns to develop in a professional context that may go beyond this position description.
