Readings for students interested in serving on the editorial staff, either as editorial assistants or interns.
Graduate Editorial Assistantships
Graduate students assigned to the North Carolina Literary Review for a 10-20–hour per week assistantship serve as Editorial Assistants. Any student accepted into an East Carolina University graduate program is eligible to apply for this assistantship.
If you are interested, contact the editor, Professor Margaret Bauer, to set up an appointment to meet or speak with her. You can do this either while you are considering applying to ECU’s graduate program or after you have been accepted.
Undergraduate students at ECU enrolled in the editor’s section of ENGL 4890 (fall) and/or 4891 (spring): Practicum/Careers in Writing serve as interns on the NCLR staff for a semester (or, with advisor approval, 2 semesters).
Students in English, Communication, Graphic Design, and Marketing would benefit from the NCLR internship.
Interns work 10 hours per week, scheduling their hours around their other class/work schedules.
Interns must have strong writing and proofreading skills and be proficient at using Microsoft Word. Ingenuity and reliability are key; the rest is learn-on-the-job.
There is no set number of interns, so applying to be an NCLR intern is not about competition; it’s about whether you have the right work ethic and strong writing skills.
