Editorial Internship, Sundress Publications


Sundress Publications is an entirely volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit publishing collective founded in 2000 that hosts a variety of online journals and publishes chapbooks, full-length collections, and literary anthologies in both print and digital formats. Sundress also publishes the annual Best of the Net Anthology, celebrating the best work published online, and the Gone Dark Archives, preserving online journals that have reached the end of their run.

The editorial internship position will run from October 15, 2017 to March 15, 2018. The editorial intern’s responsibilities can include writing press releases, composing blogs and promotional emails, proofreading manuscripts, helping to run social media sites (Facebook, WordPress, etc.), collating editorial data, and more.  The intern may also be responsible for assisting with researching grant opportunities, writing copy, conducting interviews with Sundress authors, and promoting our catalog of titles.

Preferred qualifications include:

  • A keen eye for proof-reading
  • Strong written communication skills
  • Knowledge of contemporary literature a plus

Applicants are welcome to telecommunicate and therefore are not restricted to living in the Knoxville area.

While this is an unpaid internship, all interns will gain real-world experience in the ins and outs of independent publishing with a nationally recognized press while creating a portfolio of work for future employment opportunities. Interns will also be able to attend all workshops at the Sundress Academy for the Arts at cost.

To apply, please send a resume and a brief cover letter detailing your interest in the position to the Staff Director, Jane Huffman at huffman@sundresspublications.com. Applications are due by September 15, 2017.
