Interested applicants should send a résumé and brief cover letter (no more than one page) explaining their interest and specifying the position for which they are applying. All materials should be sent to Ariel Martino, Programs Coordinator (amartino@penfaulkner.org) no later than 5 p.m. on April 28th, 2014.

 

Reading Series Intern

We’re currently seeking an intern to assist with the coordination of the 2014-2015 PEN/Faulkner Reading Series, and with the organization and upkeep of archival material from past events in that series.

The internship will involve research and marketing assistance for the reading series, as well as management of archival material, including creating and managing inventory and producing podcasts.

The internship will ideally begin in June and run through August, though start and end dates are flexible. We expect a commitment of 20 hours per week, though the intern will also have the flexibility to design his or her own schedule.

Applicants should have:

  • Excellent organizational skills
  • Excellent research and writing skills
  • Knowledge of Garage Band or other sound editing software
  • Interest in marketing and social media
  • An eye for design
  • A passion for literature, a vivid imagination, and a sense of humor

This long-standing program brings local and visiting writers and copies of their books into DC Public High School classrooms for discussion.

The internship will involve assistance in the summer reading program for high school students, research for curricular materials, reading and research on contemporary literature and authors, and preparatory logistics for the school year program.

The internship will ideally begin in June and run through August, though start and end dates are flexible. We expect a commitment of 20 hours per week, though the intern will also have the flexibility to design his or her own schedule.
