Hi All,

I am passing on a PAID internship opportunity with an exciting new, tech + literature start-up a friend of mine is working on. Please see the details below:

Literary Genome Project internships!

The Literary Genome Project is looking to hire 1-2 part-time interns for a period of 4-6 weeks. Ideal candidates are students currently enrolled in a full time creative writing, journalism or literature program and are based in New York. Potential applicants should have sufficient familiarity with narrative theory as it relates to creative fiction and nonfiction writing. No technology or programming knowledge is necessary. This is a paid internship with a compensation of $20/hour and a time commitment of at least 5 hours per week.

Please email with your resume if you are interested!

About the Literary Genome Project:

We are setting out to codify literature in a way that has not been done before and help fans of literature discover new writing and new authors.

By capturing essential attributes, or more aptly “genes”, of literature we are creating unique genomes for published books, short stories and essays. Using the genomes we aim to help readers discover new writing and new authors. For emerging writers, self-published authors and independent publishing houses this represents an exciting new way of finding and connecting with relevant audiences. 

The Literary Genome Project is a grass roots crowd-sourced effort and we are calling on emerging authors and students in creative writing, literature and journalism programs across the country to join us!
