Summer Internships

5 Apr

It’s that time again!

We’re are open for applications for our summer internship slots! Love reading? Love literary magazines? Love writing? Love planning awesome Austin readings? You’re the person for us.

Our editorial interns do things like evaluate submissions, correspond with authors, copyedit and proofread stories, help plan our launch events, and research for future issues and various ASF projects. Our internships are unpaid, but we’ll give you as much real-world lit mag experience as you can handle. We recommend that applicants have a strong background in English or American literature, or a related field. Interns usually work 10 or 15 hours a week for a period of three months–for the summer 2012 position, that’ll run from June to August. The internship is in-office, so you’ll have to be in Austin for those months.

To apply for summer, email your resume and a cover letter to info [at] americanshortfiction.org (with the subject line “summer internship”). Make sure your cover letter talks about a story, an author, or a journal that you love, and why you love the work. Our internships are pretty competitive, so make sure you pick work that has meant something to you and talk about it well.

You’ll need to get your materials to us by April 13 to be considered for an internship. If you’ve already sent along a cover letter and resume, no worries–we have it under consideration.

We’re excited to hear from you!

Are you there, spring interns?

It’s us, ASF.

We’ve been very busy this fall, but we’re finally on top of things and we’d like to officially open up applications for our spring 2012 internship slots. Hooray! We’ll be taking applications over the next few weeks; the deadline is November 23, and we’re going to be strict about it.

If you’ve already sent along your cover letter and résumé, no worries—we have it under consideration! If you’re interested in our internships and haven’t sent in an application yet, read on.

And here’s something important: In your cover letter, let us know why it’s important that we hire you and not somebody else. Demonstrate your undying passion for fiction. Tell us about your experience with contemporary short fiction. And talk about a story, an author, or a journal you can’t get enough of, and why. Our internships are pretty competitive, so make sure you pick an author or a story that has meant something to you and talk about it well.

What We’re Reading in September

15 Sep

September Roundup

Jill Meyers is reading. . .

Rasskazy: New Fiction from a New Russia (“A great roundup of writing by 22 young Russian fiction writers. For many of them, this the first time their work is appearing in English.”)
The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World
Complexity: A Guided Tour

Johannes Lichtman’s reading all things punk and heavy metal, with a foray into a “rhapsodic and piercing post-9/11 lament over aggression, greed, and racism, and a ravishing blues for the soul’s unending loneliness.” (That’s from the Booklist review of Man Gone Down.)

Man Gone Down by Michael Thomas
Sound of the Beast by Ian Christe
Heavy Metal by Deena Weinstein
The Philosophy of Punk by Craig O’Hara
Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned by Wells Tower
This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper

Sarah Wambold is reading…

A galley of  Joshua Ferris’s  The Unnamed and most likely  The Two Mrs Grenvilles by Dominick Dunne, RIP.

Dina Guidubaldi’s reading. . .

Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain (“I gave up trying to hate him.”)
A bunch of handwritten freshman essays.
The Convalescent by Jessica Anthony

Welcome, New Staff

7 Aug

American Short Fiction is thrilled to welcome Dina Guidubaldi and Stacy Muszynski, our new Web editors. These two are already devoting themselves to all things Web, as they select stories for our <a href=”http://www.americanshortfiction.org/web-exclu” target=”_blank”>monthly online series and develop the blog. (You have may noticed, we’ve upped the frequency of posts as well as the breadth of our coverage.)
Guidubaldi teaches literature and creative writing at Texas State. Her fiction has been featured in the Santa Monica Review and Ninth Letter, and her music journalism in Spin. Muszynski is an organizer and cohost of Five Things Austin and a contributor to Identity Theory and The Rumpus. She currently has fiction in elimae. Both are longtime ASF volunteers, and we are proud to have them along for this new venture.
Hooray!
