Greetings 2.29.16


Hi Readers!

I'm just going to be straightforward with you all: there's a lot of stuff you should know about this week, so I'm just going to lay it out now for you.

Once again, we are taking submissions for The Junction! Submit your ART and WRITING (short stories and poems) to  BCZINESUBMISSIONS@gmail.com by March 20th. Stop by our office, 3416Boylan to look at previous editions of The Junction and submit to us directly, if you like!

Our WRITER'S CIRCLE meets every TUESDAY from 12:30PM-1:30PM in 2307B.

The English Department's OPEN MIC will be taking place on March 24th from 12:30PM-2:00PM at the Woody Tanger Auditorium in the library. Any sort of visual or auditory performance is welcome; sign up sheet will be posted around March 10th on the door of 3416B. 

NOW, here are some job, internship, and study abroad opportunities for y'all:

The Internship Blurb:

-One Story Program: Good for grads and undergrads. At One Story, interns are introduced to the administrative and editorial responsibilities that contribute to running a successful literary magazine. Daily tasks include fielding customer service emails, assisting with major mailings, and conducting research for organizational projects. The central responsibility, however, is culling promising stories from unsolicited manuscripts and participating in weekly editorial meetings alongside senior staff. This in-depth look at the editorial process has led many interns into the publishing industry, as editors for presses both small and large, and as published writers themselves. 
Summer internships start at the end of May and go through the end of August. Internships are unpaid and require interns to be able to work at our office in Brooklyn for a minimum of 20 hours each week. Please send inquiries along with resumes to amanda@one-story.com

The Job Blurb:

-The Institute of Reading Development: Teach reading to students of all ages this summer. You can earn more than $6,000 during the summer. Teachers typically earn between $550 and $700 per week while teaching. You will gain over 500 hours of teacher-training and teaching experience with a variety of age groups.
