Agents and editors will be visiting the Loft April 20-21, 2018 to hear about your work. Register now for the Pitch Conference.


Loft internships are a great way to explore a career in the nonprofit sector and experience what it means to work in the arts. We structure our internships on a job shadowing model for the purpose of experiential education so the intern can make informed professional decisions and gain transferrable skills for their future career. The Loft offers seasonal positions supporting our education, marketing, and development efforts. Positions are unpaid and can last from 1 to 5 months. The typical responsibilities and activities of an intern vary by season and by department but can involve research, clerical support, blogging, customer service, event coordination, photography and videography, publicity, classroom assistance, and participating in staff meetings.

Typically, Poetry Out Loud internships are offered Aug-Nov and Jan-Apr. Marketing & Communications internship are typically offered in three different terms: Jan-May, mid May-Aug, and Sept-Dec.
