This is an unpaid internship.

High school and college students are welcome to join our team as poetry readers. As a poetry reader, you will read and analyze poetry and short story submissions, take notes, and recommend the best poems to our Editors.

As our Assistant Editor, you will be responsible for reading through poetry and short story submissions, shortlisting the best literary works for publication in our next editions, choosing writing contest finalists, writing book reviews, and inviting leading authors to partake in interviews.

You will also be in charge of writing valuable articles for our online magazine which include industry updates, resources for writers, as well as tips and advice for writers and poets.

You will be permanently featured on our website as the author of the articles you wrote.
You can include your contacts in your author profile as well as a link to a CV or website so other potential employers can contact you.

As our Marketing Assistant, you’ll learn valuable online marketing techniques and be responsible for marketing our magazine and contests online. You’ll also be in charge of finding talented artists and inviting them to submit their art to our magazine.

You will also be in charge of updating our social media accounts, posting writing quotes, updates about our latest publications, interesting industry news and inspirational stories about successful writers.

As our Junior Graphic Designer, you’ll help bring our publications to print. You are required to know how to use Adobe InDesign since that is where we design our magazine layouts. We are open to hearing any design suggestions you come up with and may incorporate them into our final magazine design.
