Publishing Internship – Spring 2014
Guernica Magazine is seeking a highly motivated, detail-oriented intern to assist the publishing team. This is a volunteer position and will require between five and ten hours a week, including attending bi-weekly editorial meetings.
The ideal candidate is organized, reliable, and interested in Guernica’s mission as a magazine. Since the staff mainly works remotely, an intern must be efficient at staying in touch via e-mail. Responsibilities include building and updating databases, e-mailing Guernica supporters and associates, helping organize Guernica events, supporting our social media, marketing and publicity efforts, and providing general administrative support to the publisher and publishing team.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the inner workings of an award-winning online magazine, and to join the team at a crucial point in our history, as we launch into our tenth year.
Interested applicants should send their résumé and a brief cover letter to email@example.com.
