Science Fiction Magazine Internship

 Here's a great opportunity with a leading Science Fiction magazine. Locus is offering part-time internships! Instead of me trying to explain it, here's what the Locus website itself says:

Locus, the leading monthly trade journal covering science fiction, fantasy, and horror, offers part-time unpaid internships to enthusiastic science fiction readers. 

Tasks may include running errands (must be comfortable driving a minivan), general office work (mailing, filing, faxing), customer service, occasional proofreading, grant research, grant proposal writing, archival work and cataloging, data entry, etc. You will become familiar with all aspects of the magazine, including photo colorbalancing, page layout, and small-business administration. The position is well suited to a recent graduate or current college student interested in journalism and literature.
  • Driver's license and good driving record
  • Good phone manner
  • Ability to follow through with tasks under stress
  • Basic knowledge of Word and Excel
  • Familiarity with the science fiction genre
  • Photoshop, Quickbooks, and InDesign skills a plus
To apply, please email a resume and a cover letter describing your interest in science fiction to
Resumes without cover letters will not be considered. College credit is possible through Peralta. This is an unpaid position. Hard work will be rewarded with insider knowledge and occasional meals. Job location is in the hills of Oakland, California; we strongly prefer local applicants who have their own transportation. 

If you go for this I wish you the best of luck. If you get an internship, drop me a line and let me know.
