Established in 2014, Pine Hills Review (pinehillsreview.com) is the literary magazine of The College of Saint Rose. Named after the Pine Hills neighborhood in Albany, NY, Pine Hills Review publishes artful, honest, and compelling work of new and established writers, from fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to visual art, interviews, and experimental, cross-genre work. Our staff is composed of students and faculty at The College of Saint Rose.
Pine Hills Review is not a publication that publishes student work from the College. It is an online literary journal that reads submissions from and features professional, published writers from all over the world, and at all stages of their careers. For some, appearing in Pine Hills Review will mark their very first publication. For others, it may be work from a writer who has won a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, a MacArthur “Genius” Grant, or the Pulitzer Prize.
Positions are competitive and based on a student’s dependability, willingness to learn, editing skills, and computer literacy. Here are two available internship positions.
Managing Editor Internship
The Pine Hills Review Managing Editor intern will be responsible for all stages of production and running of the journal, from organizing submissions, ruling on submissions with the editorial staff, to coordinating production of accepted writing. This intern should be highly organized, deadline-oriented, and able to multitask and work with our production schedule, edit and proofread using our style guide, and work with volunteer editors. Experience using WordPress is necessary; knowledge in Gmail and some HTML is also a plus. The managing editor will also interview at least one published writer and publish it in the pages of Pine Hills Review.
Publicity, Social Media, and Events Internship
This internship is for someone who is interested in creative writing and literary publishing and is also fluent in social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, more). The job of this intern is to get word out regarding the work that appears in Pine Hills Review’s pages. They will pitch, develop, and implement social media strategies campaigns, work with the managing editor and staff to develop social media assets (artwork, excerpts) to post and share. They will also assist in planning at least one Pine Hills Review public reading event, and interview at least one published writer and publish it in the pages of Pine Hills Review.
For all positions, the ideal candidate should be comfortable meeting on campus for 3-4 hours a week and working on their own as well. They should have strong communication, writing, and computer skills. An enthusiastic interest in the literary arts and the world of literary journals is preferred.
