Brooklyn Poets offers a limited number of work-study internships to provide aspiring poets (who have not yet published a book) with the opportunity to participate in our workshops or manuscript consultations for free or at lower cost. If you would like to apply for an internship, please fill out the application form and include in the background field a 150–300 word personal statement describing your current situation, writing background, and work experience and skills, and telling us why you are interested in interning for Brooklyn Poets. We pay $15/hr in work credits for helping at events, which interns can apply toward workshop/consultation fees. Interns must commit to working at least three events over a three-month period in order for their work credits to vest.
