Spring 2024 internship applications open for Los Angeles Review of Books, The Dial, and Dorothy Parker’s Ashes

Art of Writing provides UC Berkeley undergraduates with paid literary internship opportunities (writing, editing, social media, etc.) with partner organizations.

Applications are open for 3 of our 4 Spring 2024 internships: The Dial online magazine, Los Angeles Review of Books, and Dorothy Parker’s Ashes online magazine.

Internship expectations:

  • The internship will run through the Spring 2024 semester.
  • The intern will work 10-15 hrs/week at the internship site for a stipend of $2000, paid out in two installments (one installment at the beginning of Spring 2024 semester, and one installment at the end of the internship, when all commitments have been fulfilled).
  • The hired intern must keep a monthly informal written log of activities and reflections, shared with Art of Writing, in order to receive their stipend. Art of Writing may also conduct an informal Zoom debrief of the experience at the end of the internship.

Application Process:

This internship is designed to support undergraduate students who may not otherwise have access to such opportunities. Thus, we are prioritizing students with financial need and early career candidates for this program. To demonstrate financial need, you must have an Estimated Family Contribution of equal to or less than $26,000. See your Financial Aid & Scholarships Profile under My Finances in Cal Central to check your EFC (Estimated Family Contribution) amount.  

For more information and to apply, complete this application form by December 8, 2023. LARB applicants: follow the same link to LARB’s own application form.

For international students: Positions are open to international students as the payment is through UC Berkeley and considered on-campus employment. You do not need to apply for work authorization, but we recommend you keep documentation or a letter that explains the details of the internship.
