Volunteers and Interns

Learn more about the magazine and publishing industries—volunteer at Geist! All you need is energy, enthusiasm and a commitment of at least 4 hours per week during regular business hours.

Volunteers

Volunteers help with administrative tasks, including data entry, stuffing envelopes, mailing magazines and whatever else comes up. They also help out at events and workshops, and attend for free. We’re looking for volunteers who take initiative and bring their unique insights and skills to the magazine. Volunteers are welcome to read and comment on submissions, submit their own work for consideration and contribute to the Notes & Dispatches and Endnotes sections of the magazine. Geist volunteers form an integral part of our tight-knit team and receive an introduction to different aspects of magazine publishing, including submission management, social media, digital publishing and circulation. They are also invited to attend all in-house workshops on editing, proofreading, fact-checking, review-writing and other aspects of the writerly life.

Interns

Geist also offers paid internships on a project-by-project basis when funds are available. Almost all of our paid interns and staff began as volunteers themselves. Volunteering is the best way to learn the ins and outs of the Geist office, and to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to become an intern.
