Writespace is seeking applications for interns/volunteers for the summer and fall semesters. Team members receive a generous discount on workshops, up to 50%. Come join a fun adventure in writing! Previous experience is nice, but we’d rather that you are able to work independently and have fun!
Writespace is looking to fill the following team member positions:
WRITE FEST Assistant(s): Writespace will be hosting a special conference/writers workshop and literary journal fair in January of 2015. We are looking for assistants to help fill a dedicated Write Fest team for promotion, scheduling, sponsorship searches, and many more aspects of this event. Write Fest team members will receive free access to the event, and get to meet special guest writers (soon to be announced). This is a great opportunity for new writers who want to learn more about submitting their work to journals and magazines.

Workshop Assistant: Writespace is seeking an assistant to work closely with our director on setting up and managing new writing workshops. This position will require a minimum 10-hour per week commitment, preferably in-person. Qualified candidates will be highly organized and will possess excellent writing and editing skills.
