Considering doing an internship in the fall? As the spring semester winds down it can difficult to think about anything but finishing up course work, completing finals, and the promise of summer break. Even so, students may find themselves considering internships for the fall semester. The Center for Literary Publishing (CLP) Internship Program is one option for graduate students. CLP interns serve as first and second readers for the nearly nine thousand manuscripts of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that Colorado Review receives every year. Interns also have opportunities to copyedit, proofread, and typeset; learn about book & magazine design, production, and management; gain proficiency in current industry software (InDesign, PhotoShop, Illustrator, FileMaker, WordPress, and Submittable); participate in social media campaigns; and assist in grantwriting.
Recently on the blog, we ran a series featuring the CLP internship. In one post, CLP Director Stephanie G’Schwind answered questions for us about the internship. In another, we profiled Colorado Review Managing Editor Drew Webster. Finally, we posted a set of profiles that featured current interns talking about their experience working at the CLP — Melissa Hohl, and Jayla Rae Ardelean, and Angela Mergentime, and Andrew Mangan.
