Zoetrope: All-Story, located in San Francisco, California, offers college juniors and seniors and recent college graduates an opportunity to participate in many aspects of literary publishing, including editorial, production, and administration. We are a small staff working on a big venture, so the internship has great potential for autonomous and interesting projects—along with the shipping of magazines and answering of mail.
Intern responsibilities include:
- Reading and critiquing short story submissions
- Managing the annual short fiction contest
- Assisting with circulation and general administration
We require a minimum commitment of at least fifteen hours a week. The internship is unpaid, but we offer a one-year subscription to the magazine and assistance in converting the experience to university credit.
There are three terms: Spring, Summer, and Fall. To apply, please abide the following application deadlines.
Spring Term (January May): October 21
Summer Term (June August): April 1
Fall Term (September December): July 15
To request an application, please e-mail a cover letter and resume to email@example.com, attention: Derek Fagerstrom.
Zoetrope: All-Story is located at 916 Kearny Street (at Columbus Avenue, in North Beach) San Francisco, CA 94133.
The Reader Program
Zoetrope: All-Story seeks volunteer readers to read and critique the 10,000 submissions we receive each year. Stories the readers endorse are forwarded to the editorial staff for consideration. Readers are invited to periodic editorial meetings and special film events, and are included in the masthead. We require a minimum commitment of four hours a week but are flexible with schedules. All reading must be done in the Zoetrope office (close to public transportation), during regular business hours (Monday Friday, 9 a.m. 6 p.m.).
To apply, please e-mail a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, attention: Derek Fagerstrom.
