Each semester, the Center for Engaged Learning (CEL) invites Elon University students to apply for a paid Publishing Internship. CEL publishes open access books on engaged learning and teaching and collaborates with Stylus Publishing on print books for the Series on Engaged Learning and Teaching. Both series also feature supplemental resources published on CEL’s website.

The Publishing Intern will work 40-80 hours during the semester (depending on the intern’s professional development goals and credit hour requirements; 3-6 hours/week) to support editing, production, and promotion of books in both series, as well as the Center’s other publishing initiatives. Sample projects include: analyzing CEL’s current social media and promotion initiatives to inform a promotion proposal for a future book, designing promotional materials for the series and specific books, copyediting, indexing, and contributing to other tasks that are part of the editing and production schedule. Specific projects will be assigned based on the intern’s prior experience and professional development goals.

This position is excellent preparation for careers in Editing, Publishing, Professional and Technical Writing, Information Design, Communication, Public Relations, and related fields.

Candidates should be pursuing a BA/BS degree, certificate program, or minor in a related field (e.g, Professional Writing, Communications, etc.) and should have an interest in publishing,  editing, and social media. Prior coursework and/or experience preferred.

The starting pay rate for the Publishing Intern is $11/hour. After their initial semester in the role, the Publishing Intern will be considered for an advanced “Senior Publishing Intern” position for the following semester if their work meets expectations.

To apply, submit (via EJN) your resume and a cover letter discussing your interest in and qualifications for the position. The application period has closed for Fall 2022; the job ad for Spring 2023 will be posted in EJN later this year.
