The Georgia Review invites applications for its graduate assistantship from 15 March to 15 April. The commitment is for the academic year and provides a tuition waiver and stipend.
The primary work of this position involves the screening and evaluation of poetry, short fiction, and some nonfiction manuscripts. Secondary duties may include copyediting, fact checking, and proofreading of accepted manuscripts; interviewing authors and/or creating other features for our website; logging in and out of review books; and the training and oversight of undergraduate interns. Candidates should have a strong background in modern and contemporary literature in English, a solid familiarity with various critical approaches to the same, some knowledge of the literary journal and book publishing worlds, and exemplary fundamental writing and editing skills.
Other factors being equal, preference will be given to students who are further along in their degree program. Please direct questions to Soham Patel.
At present, we offer a limited number of unpaid internships to interested third- or fourth-year University of Georgia students during the academic year. Some exceptions may be made for individuals already holding Baccalaureate degrees. Specific arrangements are made on an individual basis, but generally the position will entail 10-12 hours of work each week and regular weekly sessions with Review staff. Since the work primarily involves reading and evaluating poetry and fiction submissions, we would prefer students who have had a number of literature and writing courses. Interns are expected to stay on for a full semester, with a second semester sometimes being an option. Interns are eligible for Experiential Learning credit. We have made our internship assignments for the 2019–2020 academic year. In April we will begin to review applications for the fall 2020 semester. Please direct intern questions to Douglas Carlson.
