The Lifted Brow is looking for interns! Is it you? Is it in you?
We offer four unpaid internship rounds per year: March—May, June—August, September—November, and December—February. We’re currently accepting applications for the September-November round.
Time required is one day per week, though there are some jobs that can fall outside of that day. Internships are based in Melbourne, at the TLB office in the Docklands.
Interns will do at least one full print issue cycle, gaining good, fun, dirty experience in editing (at all levels), miscellaneous publishing business stuff, design, events management (bands, artists, writers), and being maybe cooked for and patted on the head (a reiteration: this is an unpaid internship).
Interns will gain experience across all areas of publishing and editing: from assessing submissions, to the preparation of articles, to help with handling the business side of making magazines. Whilst you’ll often be encouraged to research interesting projects and contribute creatively, you’ll also have to do a bunch of the usual grunt work: transcription, mail runs, and so on.
Applicants should be available to start at the beginning of September, coming in all day Friday each week. Niceness and good writing and editing skills are the most important things. We’re more than happy to take interns as part of university/TAFE programs, or not.
It’s a big big big boon if you already know lots about TLB. (Can ‘knowing of’ consist of you running out right now and finding a copy of the Brow to ascertain who/what/why the hell we are? Possibly.)
Applications close at 5pm (AEST) on 10 August.
