Wigleaf: (very) short fiction

This internship provides students with hands-on experience in core operations of an award-winning online literary journal of international profile (wigleaf.com). Students will read and record preliminary evaluation of submissions of flash and micro fiction (stories of fewer than 1000 words) through Submittable, the industry-standard management system. In regular staff meetings, held Mondays from 3:00 to 3:50, students will deliberate on submissions; as part of a small editorial team, you will also be exposed to (and potentially be given the chance to become involved in) communications with authors, the editing process, the proofing of html galleys, graphic-design planning/concept work, and the promotion of stories when they go live. Weekly time commitment, not including potential staff meeting: 2 ½ hours. (1 credit hour)

To apply for the Wigleaf internship, email Scott Garson (garsons@missouri.edu). Describe potential qualifications as you see them, including enthusiasms as a reader and course work in Creative Writing. Due date is October 15th.
