Curbside Splendor was conceived as a punk rock band in the early 1990s in an apartment in Urbana, Illinois. The band never really went anywhere, but Curbside was re-founded as an independent press in the fall of 2009. We’re located in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. We publish fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry that celebrates extraordinary voices. Through a handful of projects (which include publishing books, hosting an annual novella contest, and producing readings, shows, and book fairs) we aim to rewrite the tradition of Midwestern publishing. In August 2016, we will open Curbside Books & Records in Revival Food Hall, located at 125 S. Clark Street.
Editorial interns will assist with the implementation of publicity efforts for six of our key spring titles, copyedit manuscripts, research, write, and post content to Curbside Splendor’s blog (including at least three book reviews of independent books), assist in maintaining our social media accounts, table at book fairs and festivals, and manage sales through our web store.
Curbside Splendor requests a commitment of 10-20 hours a week from September through December. Interns will report to our our home office in Humboldt Park, and will be working intimately with editor-in-chief Naomi Huffman and managing editor Catherine Eves.
The internship is unpaid. Contact Naomi Huffman at naomi@curbisdesplendor.com for more information.

Chicago Shakespeare Seeking Education Department Intern

defaultThis internship with Chicago Shakespeare provides an opportunity to spend a number of weeks researching a play, its historical and social context, its publication and production history, and its critical history—and to publish online for hundreds of teachers using this resource each year.

An invaluable experience for students considering writing as part of their future career, they will work with a professional editor throughout the internship. The work leads to an online publication of essays and teaching activities—central components to Chicago Shakespeare’s 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 the department, which is varied as they move through the season.

A background in Shakespeare, early modern drama, or performance studies is certainly helpful—but is not a pre-requisite. What is required in a qualified candidate is a passion and acumen for research, for distillation of complex ideas, and for writing accessibly and thoughtfully—and, ideally, creatively in the structure of an expository form.

Apply here.

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

If you are selected, contact Prof. Chris Green (CGREEN1@depaul.edu) to discuss internship credit.
