Seeking Writing Workshop Intern

Morningside Writers Group seeks a P/T on-site assistant for administrative, workshop, website tasks, and branding for a period of at least six months. We are seeking an Uptown-only administrative assistant for easy access to on-site meetings, trips to copy center, Staples, etc. Please do not apply if you do not live between Columbus Circle and Washington Heights.

The ideal applicant has a minimum of 7 hours, maximum of 10, weekly to help the founder/moderator in person on the Upper West Side, electronically, and over the phone. Tasks may include group scheduling, bookkeeping, Xeroxing, writing and responding to e-mail inquiries, soliciting/interacting with monthly columnists, and administrative needs as they arise.

We could offer writing mentoring or editing if the potential candidate is an aspiring writer (fiction, memoir, screenwriting, or spec fiction/sci-fi) but the administrative, marketing, and branding tasks are essential above all else.

Please send a cover letter, résumé, and why you'd be interested in working as an assistant to MWG Assistant. There's an opportunity to earn a stipend for ad sales and placement.
