Internship: Women’s National Book Association

internship-alert

screen-shot-2016-09-28-at-2-27-00-pm

The Women’s National Book Association was established on November 13, 1917, in New York City by a group of women booksellers shut-out of the American Booksellers Association and the Booksellers’ League. Many of them joined forces over another cause—women’s suffrage—in the fall of that year. In fact, on October 27, just two days before the WNBA founders first gathered at Sherwood’s Bookstore in downtown Manhattan to discuss forming a women’s booksellers group, many of them had assembled as a group in a huge parade to support New York State’s referendum on women’s suffrage. That year, suffrage passed, making New York the first state in the East to grant women the right to vote. And that year, when the WNBA was founded, some thirteen women launched their efforts in connecting, educating, advocating, and leading in the literary world—an enterprise still going strong 100 years later.

The Women’s National Book Association will be celebrating its Centennial during the last week of October, 2017 with a national board meeting and a series of stellar, celebratory events.

We are looking to fill one exciting internship opportunity in New York City available starting in November of 2016 and running through November of 2017. Interns will work remotely but will also meet regularly with the Executive Board members and Committee Chairs. The hours of the internship will vary but will be a minimum of 20 hours a month. 

This is an unpaid position but each intern will have a free membership to the organization during the term of the internship.

This is an exciting opportunity not only to gain experience working with a 503c non-profit but also to interact with the publishing professionals who work in all aspects of the industry—as well as people who love books!

TITLE/Position: Centennial Planning Intern

Essential job responsibilities include:

  • Provide editorial assistance, including photo research, for the WNBA Centennial publication
  • Work on developing and updating the WNBA’s National and Centennial websites
  • Assist with the Coordination of the National Centennial Lecture Series
  • Assist in the development of Celebrating Women’s Voices (100 books lists – one for Fiction and one for Non-Ficiton) that will be made public in March of 2017    
  • Help with organizing the national meeting/centennial celebrations
  • Attend meetings with key board and committee members
