  • Internship in Literary Editing

  • The Center for Literary Publishing offers English department graduate students (in any concentration) the opportunity to assist in the operations of a small literary press. Each year the CLP publishes six books: three issues of Colorado Review and three collections of poetry. We also run a national poetry contest, the Colorado Prize for Poetry, as well as a national short fiction contest, the Nelligan Prize. Interns serve as readers for the nearly ten thousand manuscripts of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that we receive every academic year. Interns also have opportunities to copyedit, proofread, and typeset manuscripts; learn about book production and design; handle subscriptions and circulation; learn about marketing and social media techniques; and gain proficiency with current industry software (InDesign, PhotoShop, FileMaker, and Submittable). The internship is offered as a variable-credit course. Students may register for 1 to 5 credits, working 40 hours for each credit ( 3 hours a week for one credit, 6 for two credits, 9 for three credits, and so on). Interns must maintain regularly scheduled office hours.
