CDC Intern Picks: Stadler Center & Lewisburg Community Garden

We are keeping it local with this week’s CDC Intern Picks by highlighting two great opportunities here on campus/in Lewisburg:

  1. West Branch Publishing Internship, Fall 2017 – Apps due March 24
  2. AmeriCorps Positions at Lewisburg Community Garden, Summer 2017

For those wanting to gain experience in publishing there is a great opportunity for you here on campus with West Branch, Bucknell’s professional, nationally distributed literary journal, offers a competitive, semester-length, internship for qualified sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are interested in the world of literary publishing. This internship is non-paid but students will receive one course credit for successful completion of the program. The West Branch internship is most relevant for students interested in creative writing, contemporary literature, and/or the literary publishing industry. Interns work for 6-10 hrs/week in the West Branch office at the Stadler Center for Poetry and attend editorial meetings with the editors.

How to apply? Applications should include a letter of interest; resume; an academic transcript (unofficial is fine) and contact info for two references, normally professors or previous employers. (Please note: letters of recommendation are not necessary.) All application materials should be sent by email to westbranch@bucknell.edu by Friday, March 24th. Get more information on the West Branch Internship.

Our next intern pick highlights AmeriCorps positions at Lewisburg Community Garden. The Lewisburg Community Garden has two openings for summer AmeriCorps members to support our food access efforts and educational programs! These are full-time positions, beginning May 23, and ending August 4. Members will receive a $3,390 living stipend, and an education award of $1,527.45 that can be used to pay off existing or future college tuition. Both positions also come with some basic health insurance. While both positions are involved in the daily garden duties of planting, harvesting, etc., one focuses on assisting with food production and distribution for local food security programs, and one focuses on our K-12 summer camps and other educational activities. Check out this blog post or this one from previous AmeriCorps members to learn more and see what a great opportunity this is – especially for a gap summer while waiting to start your future plans (grad school, job, travel…).  For a full position description or to schedule an interview, you can contact Kyle Bray at kwb004@bucknell.edu, or 570-577-3928 up in the Civic Engagement Office.

BONUS Intern Pick: And here’s a crazy idea – if you are staying in Lewisburg for the summer maybe you can also intern at the CDC! We have summer internships available. Many students staying on campus to conduct research or with other part-time jobs have been able to intern at the CDC as well. Check the Bridge for more details – applications are due March 24th!

We highlight a few CDC Intern Picks that we think you’ll find particularly interesting every week.  Learn more by checking out each pick on the BridgeAnd while you’re there, see what other interesting opportunities you find!
