We regularly seek volunteers who help read and evaluate submissions. We are not currently taking new applications, but you can read more about our application process for fiction here. For other genres, please inquire at NEReview@middlebury.edu.
New England Review offers internships to Middlebury College students each semester and during winter term and summer. Interns contribute to various aspects of the publication and its website, podcast, and reading series. Some components of the internship include screening submissions; assisting with readings and other events; podcast production and recording; website posting; proofreading; fact-checking; publicity; marketing research; social media.
During the school year, interns are expected to work 4 hours per week in the office. Summer interns work approximately 15 hours per week in the office. The winter term internship is more intensive and can be completed for credit.
Interns may also opt to participate in our submissions discussion group (see below); this time is unpaid.
Middlebury students interested in applying for an internship should send a resume and letter of interest to Carolyn Kuebler or apply on Handshake.
Please note the following deadlines for internship applications:
Summer—UPDATE! applications for summer tend to come earlier every year, so this will be open until filled; we suggest you apply by Feb. 4.
Submissions Discussion Group
In addition to our internships, New England Review invites current students to apply to participate in a submissions discussion group. This is not a paid position. For this group, students read and discuss submissions alongside NER staff members. Interested students should send a resume and letter of interest to Carolyn Kuebler.
