Kelly Writers House Summer 2015 Internships
The Kelly Writers House will offer three summer internships for Penn undergraduates wishing to gain practical experience working within a busy, nonprofit literary arts center. One intern will assist our editorial team with the online magazine Jacket2, gaining experience in copyediting, art acquisition, content management, and online publishing. Other interns will assist with the work of planning, archiving, and developing Writers House programs and materials (event planning and research, post-event archiving, program development, student outreach, PR, and more) and will spend time writing and developing content for our website and print annual. All interns will assist with daily operations. Please specify in your application your particular interest in one of the two internship areas: editorial or program assistance.
To apply for any of these internships, please complete the application form, along with a two-page (500-word) essay explaining your suitability for the internship and organization to which you are applying, and how the internship will help you achieve your educational goals. Along with this essay, please upload an electronic version of your Penn InTouch transcript by copying and pasting your Penn InTouch transcript into a Word document, typing your name and Penn ID number at the top of the page, and saving it as a pdf. Please attach first your essay and then your transcript in a single pdf.
