We accept internship applications on a rolling basis for the fall and spring semesters of every year. Students may take the internship simply for the learning experience, or, once accepted, you may also register for class credit. All interns (regardless of taking for class credit) are required to intern for two semesters.
Please allow at least 7 business days for a response from the Press. Because of limited physical space, we are only able to accept a few interns each year, but applicants should feel free to apply multiple times.
Responsibilities include general office work, including answering the phone, responding to unsolicited manuscripts, helping with mailing of galleys and review copies, fulfilling book orders, etc. Interns also gain hands-on experience with subsidiary rights and copyright issues; customer service and order fulfillment; Irish authors and overseas publishers; proofreading and book production; marketing and promotional outreach, including e-newsletters, social media, writing web content, web updates, and customer/audience development; and organizing readings for WFU Press poets, both on campus and at other venues.
