Internship with poet Valerie Wallace

Valerie Wallace is the author of the forthcoming full-length book House of McQueen, which won the 2016 Four Way Books Intro Prize in Poetry.

An intern would help her with tasks and projects related to marketing during the year ahead of publication, including building and maintaining an email list, scheduling readings, social media, possibly non-technical help with a book trailer. Proofreading parts of the manuscript before it goes to her editor, and helping organize the end matter (publications, acknowledgements) would also be of great help. Intern should have a comfort level with email, Excel, Word, cloud sharing, Twitter, be a good writer, and have a personality oriented toward caring about small details.

An interest in poetry is not required but preferred. Willingness to travel to Hyde Park for one or two meetings is requested.

Time period: 10 weeks during one or spread across two semesters.
Start date: January 2017
