2024 Summer Internship

We’re seeking paid interns to join our team for the summer (June–August). Interns will gain experience in all aspects of a small nonprofit literary publisher, including reading submissions, assisting with educational programming, social media, and more.

This position is approximately 10 hours per week starting mid-June and ending mid-August. An exact schedule will be determined upon hiring, but interns should plan on spending one day a week in the One Story offices in Gowanus, Brooklyn (with the exception of the week of our writers’ conference 7/29-8/2, when they will be assisting staff throughout the week). The rest of the work can be done remotely.

Applicants should be current students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program based in the United States and will need to be within commuting distance from our offices. They should also have a demonstrated interest in the art form of the short story. We offer a stipend of $1200.

Applications open on March 13. They consist of a cover letter and CV and must be submitted via Submittable by Wednesday, April 10th. For questions, please contact
