Today, I’d like to solicit your advice for an undergraduate who contacted me over the weekend. I have this individual’s permission to post the original message here:
I am currently heading into my 3rd year at … College, majoring in creative writing, American Literature and literary theory. I am going to be in NYC (Brooklyn, specifically) in July and August before returning to school, and was wondering if you knew of any possible internships (paid or unpaid, no preference) that would be available at this date in writing or publishing. I’m looking for something that might offer some good experience for a soon to graduate student with an interest in writing and publishing. If you knew of anything or could help out in any way, I would be so grateful.
And I’d be grateful, too, if you’d share any suggestions in comments. Thank you!
