We regularly seek volunteers who help read and evaluate submissions. We are not currently taking applications for readers, however, you can read more about the process here: Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction.
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 regular semesters, interns are expected to work 4 hours per week. Summer interns work approximately 15 hours per week. 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 apply on PeopleAdmin through the Student Employment Office. The winter term internship will be listed on Handshake. We will do our best to keep the positions up to date on those platforms, but questions can be directed to Carolyn Kuebler.
Please note the following approximate deadlines for internship applications:
Summer—February 20 [Summer 2021’s deadline will be Feb. 28 at the earliest]
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.
