As of Friday, April 9, we are no longer accepting applications for summer internships.
Tʜᴇ Lᴀᴍᴘ is looking for at least one part-time summer editorial intern. The posting will involve around five hours of work each week. The intern will serve remotely at the direction of the editor and publisher on various tasks related to the production of the magazine (copy and line editing, fact checking, uploading published articles to the website, sending proofs and other correspondence to authors). Exceptionally talented interns may be invited to write for the magazine.
Prospective interns should send a short letter (no more than three hundred words) to firstname.lastname@example.org or to P.O. Box 219, Three Rivers, Michigan, 49093. We are less interested in résumés than we are in an applicant’s ability to write that word with two acute accents, and we are almost totally indifferent to academic qualifications, grade point averages, and that sort of thing. Instead, use your letter to give us a short autobiographical sketch and a paragraph or two about why you would like to help out with Tʜᴇ Lᴀᴍᴘ, what other publications you read, and any experience you consider relevant. (Feel free to include one additional sample of writing, published or otherwise.) If we wish to move forward with your application, we will pass along our editing test.
Note: The deadline for applications is Friday, April 9.
