Fall 2011 Workshop Assistants

Morningside Writers Group seeks one or two P/T (preferably Harlem/Upper West Side-based) interns for administrative, workshop, website tasks and branding.

As an intern you will have hands-on experience writing proposals. We offer great opportunities for learning and experience that will give successful candidates a major advantage in their careers. In exchange, we expect the best from you.

Among the must-haves: great writing skills, an interest in literature, publishing, community outreach, outstanding organizational skills, an interactive people personality, and--most importantly--the desire to (and an understanding of what it means to) work as an integral part of a creative community.

The ideal applicant  has a minimum of 7 hours, maximum of 10, weekly to assist founder and creative director electronically (Skype,etc) and over the phone. Tasks will include research, fund-raising, grant-writing, community development, workshop scheduling, bookkeeping, Xeroxing, writing and responding to e-mail inquiries and administrative needs as they arise.

We are offering writing mentoring or editing (fiction, memoir, screenwriting, or spec fiction/sci-fi) and college credit, but there is an opportunity to earn commissions for ad sales/placement, and flat fees for successful pitches and proposals.

Please send a brief cover letter, resume, and why you'd be interested in working as an intern to MWG Assistant. A background or ongoing education in English Literature, Creative Writing, or Communications is required.
