Events Production Internships


We are looking for interns who are interested in gaining experience in event production to work specifically at our popular and celebrated program of literary events.

 

The internship is split into two: (1) planning and programming, and (2) production. These two elements run concurrently.

 

You will learn the processes that go into researching and planning a program of events, marketing and publicity methods, as well as how to set up, run, and break down events.

 

Responsibilities include assisting setup (A/V, refreshments, book selling, etc.), and execution of events (audience control, photography, videotaping, reception, etc.).

 

A background or interest in event planning, and/or theater production would be helpful, as well as knowledge of A/V. Some heavy lifting is necessary for the position.

 

This internship is a great way to gain experience in event production, and connect to an amazing line-up of authors, editors, and publishers.

 

This is a nonpaying position, but qualifies for college credit, and interns have access to:

  • Our extensive fiction library,
  • Study space,
  • Use of our Writers Studio, and
  • 10% off in our bookstore.

  •  

The days of the internship are flexible, and on event days the hours are 5PM til 9PM. 

 

Interested candidates should email rosie@centerforfiction.org, with a brief cover letter and resume. Please include the title of the internship in the subject line.

 

Essential Job Functions:  Research and planning, publicity and marketing, execution of regular author, music, and other events; setting up book sale table and handling sales; breaking down event space.

 

Schedule: PT, afternoon and evening—8-15 hours per week.

 

Qualifications: Interest in books and/or event production; professional communication and interpersonal skills; strong social media skills a plus, but not required!
