Fall 2013 Trainees

I am seeking trainees for the online literary magazine Superstition Review. Trainees will register for a 3 credit hour ENG 394 course in Fall 2013. The course will offer a study of the field of literary magazines; it will introduce students to the processes and practices of a national literary publication, and it will include review and reading of contemporary art and literature. Students will be encouraged to create their own literary brand that will help make them more marketable for publishing jobs. Upon successful completion of ENG 394, trainees will enroll in ENG 484 in Spring 2014 and become active interns with the magazine.

Application for Fall Trainees.

What Former Interns Say:

  • Trish provided valuable experience in my field of interest that is not offered anywhere else. This class has been a huge eye-opener for me and I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work in the publishing and editing industry before graduating. The skills I learned have given me a huge amount of confidence as I begin my search for a job, and I’m so glad this course was available. Trish is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and very trusting of her students. Although all the work for SR goes through her, she allows for students to take some control and engage in the work fully. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
  • I really enjoyed this course and found it to be one of my favorites taken so far at ASU. I feel like the instructor taught me a lot and really challenged me. The class was well structured and I always felt as though I knew what was expected of me, but what I like was that within the structured assignments there was a lot of room for me to work independently and complete assignments in my own way. I would recommend this course and others by this instructor to friends.
  • Trish is extremely personable and is great at making people feel welcomed and she listens very well to her students.
  • Trish is extremely accessible and welcoming. I felt very comfortable coming to her with questions, even if they seem stupid. I feel I got a great internship experience that will help me post graduation.
  • Very organized, and even though it was an online class, the instructor was always willing and available and kept in contact through email.
  • I was able to learn so much about publishing, editing, and running a magazine. There were always tasks that could be completed that were never regarded as busywork. Patricia is very knowledgeable, friendly, respectful, and encouraging. She truly values the work of her students and her students themselves just as much, if not more, as we value her teaching and her.
  • Very personable and involved with the students as to what is going on in their academic and personal lives.
  • Trish is very knowledgeable in what she does. She’s technologically savvy, and very educated in literature and the arts, as well as aware of current happenings in the modern literature and art world.

Applications are open January 31 and will be accepted until positions are filled.

    This is a great opportunity for students! I’m pretty sure many students would love to join this Internship and training. This will also help students to avoid unnecessary activities in summer. Thank you for this informative post. I’m looking forward for more of your post.

    This internship really is an amazing opportunity. You learn so much about the world of literary magazines. As an intern, I have been exposed to contemporary literature and have had the opportunity to work with authors. I would recommend this internship to anyone who wants to learn more about the literary world.

    I would recommend this internship to anyone wanting to get plugged into the online literary world. It has shown me that literature exists outside of a bookstore and was a great guide in the abyss. I hope people don’t pass up this opportunity!

    This internship is a wonderful opportunity to grow as an artist and as a professional. As an intern you are exposed to contemporary literature and learn ideas from published authors on how to improve your own writing. You also receive training in different medias and programs that are used within the literary field, such as social networks, WordPress, Drupal, ect. You won’t be sorry you applied!

    Even as just a trainee, I’ve already feel like I’ve garnered so much information in such a short time, and there’s still the rest of my semester and the internship part of my time with s[r] next semester. This is definitely not an opportunity to pass up.

      I agree completely. As a trainee I have learned (and am learning still) a tremendous amount of information – not to mention I have gained valuable experience simultaneously. I would highly recommend this opportunity.
