Internship Opportunity: Cliff Dwellers

Currently, the Cliff Dwellers are seeking an intern with a passion for local cultural initiatives and the desire to gain experience in supporting a non-profit on a new fundraising initiative.

In 1907, Chicago author Hamlin Garland and friends founded the Attic Club, which two years later was re-named The Cliff Dwellers. The Cliff Dwellers is a private club for members who are either professionally engaged in literature, painting, music, architecture, sculpture, or one of the allied arts, or who support the fine arts and the performing arts.

The Club, located in the 22nd floor penthouse of the former BorgWarner building at the southwest corner of Michigan Avenue at Adams Street, is next door to Symphony Center and overlooks Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago.

We offer programs and art exhibits for our members and their guests, and support local younger artists and performers through our Artists-in-Residence (A-I-R) program.  Members can also reserve Club space for private parties and dinners.

 

Qualifications: 

High-performing undergrad or graduate student with experience working in the non-profit sector and a desire to grow the arts and culture landscape of Chicago.

 

Duties: 

Reporting to Ed Gordon and Chris Vinyard, this internship position will support in administrative tasks at the Cliff Dwellers office space at 200 S Michigan Avenue. This includes:

Support in the tracking of gifts
Learning about the organizational structure and management system of Cliff Dwellers
Supporting the Full-Time staff in the procurement of 2020 Endowment
Participating in and supporting in art and cultural events towards the final mission of the Cliff Dwellers

Paid Summer Internship, Hub City Press

books-1245744_1920

Are you graduating this year? Do you want to get your foot in the door of the publishing industry? Check out this internship from Hub City Press.

Hub City Press is excited to share a new publishing internship opportunity starting summer 2018. This is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in publishing to work with the premiere independent literary publisher in the South.

Hub City Press’s Summer Publishing Internship program is based out of the Writers House, an historic cottage in downtown Spartanburg, S.C. The program is open to those interested in literary publishing in the United States who have completed a college degree (BA, BFA, MA, MFA, PhD) in creative writing within the past five years or are pursuing a graduate degree (MFA, MA, or PhD) in writing or related field. Our residencies include work in the Hub City Bookshop and in the Press offices for no more than 25 hours per week. The internship will also require remote work including manuscript reading, copyediting, and proofing. Interns receive lodging, utilities, and a stipend of $150 a week. Submissions can be made through Submittable through April 2018. The next internship opportunity will be: June 4th to August 15th, 2018.

Chicago Shakespeare Theater Internship

CST_SSMIDS-01_LizLauren

Chicago Shakespeare Theater is currently seeking applicants for part- or full-time internships during the summer.

This internship provides the opportunity to devote a number of weeks to researching a play—its  historical and social contexts, its publication and production history, and its critical history—and to develop resources for hundreds of teachers who will be teaching the play.  An invaluable experience for students considering professional writing in their career, they will work with Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s editor throughout the internship. The work leads to an online publication of essays and teaching activities—central components to our handbooks, typically one hundred pages in length. In addition to the research and writing component, education interns are also immersed in the day-to-day work of our department, which is varied as we move through the summer months.

A background in Shakespeare, early modern drama, or performance studies is certainly helpful—but is not a pre-requisite. (One of our most successful interns was a history major, in fact.) What is required in a qualified candidate is a passion and acumen for research, and for writing accessibly, thoughtfully, and, ideally, creatively within the structure of an expository form.

Candidates are asked to submit samples of writing, along with their cover letter, CV and letters of recommendation.

If you are selected, email Prof. Chris Green (CGREEN1@depaul.edu) and he will register you for summer internship credit.
