  1. Internship with CHICAGO REVIEW OF BOOKS

Apply to Adam Morgan chireviewofbooks@gmail.com

We’re looking for editorial and social media help.

Essentially, interning at the CHIRB is a great experience for young writers hoping to break into the publishing or media industries, and/or hoping to add some bylines to their CV.

Past interns have gone on to work at Melville House and WW Norton. There are free books involved, and we provide them with free working space at the Literacenter downtown.
