Hello Students! I am a grad of the MFA Program. My focuses were Poetry and Copywriting/Marketing.
I am looking for one or more students who are interested in working with me virtually. This would be ideal for someone who would rather not travel for an internship or enrichment project. This can be done from the comfort of your own home or office.
Here's the deal:
I work with poets to help them promote their new books and publicize their readings, workshops and events. This entails creating and updating websites and Facebook profiles and pages, hosting online book launch parties, coordinating reading dates and schedules with bookstores and other venues and being in touch with publishers to make sure books are in stock for readings and events.
I need help! I would tailor your internship or project to your interests, talents and needs as best as I can. E-mail me if you have questions or want to sign on: firstname.lastname@example.org
I also work with a small poetry press and we need some help there too. Also a virtual opportunity.
P.S. These are "volunteer" opportunities. No stipend will be allotted, but you will learn a lot, "meet" (virtually) interesting poets and publishing folks and hopefully have some fun along the way.
