The 20.35 Africa team is looking for two editorial interns.
The first internship is for graphic design, but we will prioritize applicants who are passionate about poetry or literature. The second intern will work with one of our editors, Portia Opare, on the “Conversations” series, and must also be passionate about contemporary poetry.
As an editorial intern at 20.35 Africa, you will also work with other members of the team and experience the entire scope of operation of a small non-profit literary organization, including compiling, publicizing, and publishing a digital anthology. General administrative support will be shared among interns.
