Description

SHORT JOB DESCRIPTION FOR PUBLISHING INTERNS & VOLUNTEERS

Depending on the individual’s interests and expertise, the intern or volunteer may assist in the following areas toward the production of the ART of Magazine®:

WRITING: Generally short notices, biographical notes, promotional copy, and in some cases articles.

PROOFREADING: All editorial and promotional copy, with the assistance of the editorial staff.

RESEARCH: Biographical information on authors, books, and/or marketing information.

FACT CHECKING: Verifying that all proper nouns are spelled correctly and have the correct diacritical marks; that all bylines are current; that publishing information, including complete addresses for small presses, is correct; etc.

COPYEDITING: Only if an intern or volunteer shows exceptional talent and ability to work with grammar and style, and has a working knowledge of software we use, will they do actual copyediting. However, the opportunity exists to learn copyediting and become familiar with editing techniques.

OFFICE WORK: Some clerical tasks, primarily faxing, ordering books from publishers, some filing.

WORD PROCESSING: Since TAO generates its pages, the editorial materials need to be proofread and corrected. Typing skills are helpful— though not required.

PRODUCTION: Depending on the interests of the intern or volunteer, she or he may assist in the Art Department. In general, we try to give the intern or volunteer as broad a work experience as they are interested in receiving. We like Interns to assist in all areas of the production of our magazine, including the rather mundane tasks involved with distribution (stapling, folding, etc.), depending on the individual student’s interests and abilities.
