Do you love to read contemporary fiction? Poetry? Essays? Are you a literary tastemaker? Cleaver needs readers whose sensibilities click with our own to help us thwack! through our growing submissions pile and proofread the pieces we accept. Editorial interns read and vote on submissions, help us proofread the issue before it goes live, and write at least one book review. Time commitment: 2-6 hours/week (or more if you would like.) We can work with your college or university to provide academic credit for a semester-long internship at Cleaver. 

Here's how to apply:
  • Upload your resume and a writing sample in the main genre you'd like to work with.
  • Write a cover letter telling us about yourself and why you'd like to be on the Cleaver team. Be sure to explain which genres you're comfortable evaluating and editing.
