Comic book and graphic novel small press Editor-in-Chief and writer is looking for an editorial intern who is available at least 2-3 days per week. Duties will include proof-reading, research, reviewing submissions, updating website content and social networking sites, and general administrative tasks such as preparing correspondence. Duties may also include assisting at local events like comic cons and book signings.

There will be opportunities to assist with book projects, discuss the current market trends, learn about the industry from the inside, and destroy onrushing hordes of zombies. While the position is unpaid, in exchange for your assistance I am willing to provide mentoring on the writing process, the potential to develop contacts in the industry, and the occasional free entrance into a comic con. With a good work ethic, a bit of talent and some perseverance, the right candidate might even have opportunities to see their work published.

Requirements:


Strong grasp of English, including excellent spelling and knowledge of grammatical rules;
Familiarity (and preferably experience) with word processing software, internet research, WordPress or other content management system and social networking sites;
Reliable access to an internet-connected computer;
Ideally local to the Raleigh-Durham, NC area with available transportation to attend meetings and events;
A good attitude and a keen interest in graphics-based storytelling.

If this is an opportunity you're interested in, please respond with a couple of paragraphs explaining why you are perfect for this position and why you want it, via a Private Message here on AW.

Thanks.
