Center for Fiction: Event Internship

Here’s a great internship opportunity for anyone interested in contemporary fiction, but also those interested in lots of the things that students in Communication Design and Entertainment Technology do. Here’s what Linda Lee McBride, Events Producer, wrote about the internship:

Event Internship

We are looking for interns to work specifically at our literary events, helping with setup (sound, promotional materials, refreshments, book selling, etc.), and the execution of the event (audience control, photography, videotaping, reception, etc.). A background or interest in event planning, and/or theater production would be helpful as well as knowledge of A/V, although not required. Some heavy lifting is necessary for the position. This internship is a great way to gain experience in event production and to connect to an amazing line-up of authors. This is a nonpaying position, but access to an extensive fiction library, study space and use of our Writers Studio is available. Interested candidates should email Linda McBride, linda@centerforfiction.org, with a brief cover letter and their resume. Please include the title of the internship in the subject line.
