March 13, 2018, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at Poets House, 10 River Terrace, New York, NY 10282
Join us for a celebration of our brilliant and dedicated interns! Featuring: Valentine Conaty, Abby Reynolds, Amelea Ng, Alyson Fusaro, and Rachel Rubino.
Poets House is a comfortable, accessible place for poetry—a library and meeting place which invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry. Poets House seeks to document the wealth and diversity of modern poetry, to stimulate dialogue on issues of poetry in culture, and to cultivate a wider audience for poetry.
Our 70,000-volume poetry library is free and open to the public Tuesday-Saturday, Tuesday-Friday 11am-7pm and Saturday 11am-6pm. Additionally, we host readings and workshops in our performance and conference spaces. With such a large collection and with so many active programs for poets (young and old), Poets House depends on the help of volunteers and interns.
Our volunteers and interns are talented poets and lovers of the literary arts, and we are thrilled to showcase them at this reading!
Poets House internships are offered on a seasonal basis to interested and qualified candidates. Intern duties include, but are not limited to, shelving and library maintenance, reference questions, editing, proofreading, correspondence, serving as Poets House ambassadors (greeting library patrons and being their guide to the space), and assisting staff members with specialty projects. The internship provides professional experience and a window into the work demanded by a growing non-profit organization. If you’d like to apply for a Poets House internship, please send a cover letter and resume to Lucy Dunphy Barsness at firstname.lastname@example.org.
