Internship Detail

[Back to Internships]

Description: Interested in learning more about small press publishing from the inside? Creative Nonfiction is offering a one-year publishing fellowship. Fellows will work mainly on the Writing Pittsburgh project, a series of three Pittsburgh-focused books published over five years, but will also have the opportunity to work on other CNF projects, including the magazine and other books. Because CNF is a small nonprofit organization, the fellow will learn about everything--not just the editorial work--that goes into publishing a book and magazine, from marketing to distribution to event planning.

Length of Internship: 1 year
Requirements: The fellowship is open to anyone; we're happy to work with current students who might be eligible to get course credit, but we're equally open to working with non-students.

The publishing fellowship requires a 15 hour per week commitment, starting in September 2015 and ending in August 2016, and comes with an stipend of $5,000, paid over the year. The fellow will work in Creative Nonfiction's Pittsburgh office.
Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Application Due Date: The extended deadline for applications is June 8, 2015. We will conduct interviews in June/July and will award the fellowship by July 15.
Payment: $5,000 stipend, paid over a year
How To Apply For This Internship: To apply, you'll need to visit and upload a one-page resume; a thoughtful and well-written one- to two-page cover letter introducing yourself and explaining your qualifications and your motivations for wanting to learn more about literary publishing; and contact information for three professional references.
