The Epiphany summer internship includes a combination of editorial and managerial work, so that interns get a sense for both of these aspects of running a literary magazine.
Interns’ chief editorial responsibility is to read submissions to the magazine. Interns receive feedback and mentorship from an Epiphany editor throughout the process.
On the managerial side of things, interns help run the magazine’s social media and take on various small research projects and day-to-day tasks. These do not include getting coffee. Furthermore, the Epiphany Bill of Interns’ Rights* dictates that no intern shall be asked to complete more than seventeen spreadsheet-related tasks during their tenure with the magazine.**
Some of the finer details:
- Internships are 20 hrs/week and can be conducted from New York, Los Angeles, or, in some cases, remotely.
- Internships are unpaid.
