The festival, which will take place April 28-29 in downtown Berkeley, is now accepting interns to receive course credit. The internship is an excellent opportunity for students to learn what is required to produce a major literary event, and can be tailored to suit a variety of interests. For example, a student may choose to focus on marketing and communications, theater management, sponsorship development and management, or international author programming, among other areas. Work hours are also flexible — time commitments can be customized to meet unit requirements and may vary according to responsibility area.
To apply, you must be a college student eligible to receive course credit for the internship. If you are a UC Berkeley Rhetoric Major, please see the “Application for Enrollment in Rhetoric 197” at the bottom of the page. All other students, please see the “Application for Enrollment in Independent Studies” directly below.
Applications are competitive and due by November 20th, 2017. Internships will begin on January 2nd, 2018 and terminate at the end of the Spring semester. If you have any questions, please contact Sabrina Werts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
