PEN/Faulkner Internship FAQs
Who Should Apply
We welcome undergraduate or graduate students, as well as recent graduates, from a variety of degree fields, including but not limited to English, Creative Writing, Communications, Education, Public Relations, and Humanities. Candidates who are native Spanish speakers or with native-level fluency in Spanish are encouraged to apply.
We value individuals of diverse talents, backgrounds, and experiences, particularly if you’re an invested reader who believes in the power of narratives. We love candidates who show that their knowledge of writers isn’t limited to canonical artists.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, our application deadlines have changed. Please see individual internship descriptions for more information.
While our internships are unpaid, we can provide academic credit and do offer a travel stipend that is prorated based on the number of internship weeks and hours worked. We are offering a modest travel stipend for virtual internships as well.
