Going Down Swinging

Events Intern

Applications are now open for Going Down Swinging’s 2019 internship program.

This year is going to be jam-packed with wild new words, art and performance at Going Down Swinging. We’re looking back on our forty-year history with a view to our future, and we need fresh minds and perspectives to do it.

We’re offering two distinct opportunities to make your mark on a very special edition of one of the country’s longest-running literary publications.

Fancy some first-hand experience in putting together a print anthology with a history? Keen to get all up in our social media and marketing? Always wondered about event programming and artist liaison? Check out the position description for Events Intern here. We’re also offering an editorial internship in 2019; check out that listing here

The positions are Melbourne-based and we particularly encourage Indigenous people, queer people, trans people and people of all abilities, religions, ethnicities and genders to apply. If you’re someone who loves all kinds of stories (and hummus), you may be the person for us.

To apply, please send through your CV and a brief cover letter that outlines who you are, what you enjoy reading and why you’d like to join GDS.

Applications close March 4, 2019 with interviews being held the evening of March 13, 2019. Applications can be sent via email to info@goingdownswinging.org.au.
