On this submission page we advertise when Brink's group writing project is running, release our internship application forms, and open up applications for other opportunities.
Brink Literacy Project is proud to offer spring and fall publishing internships every year. Each internship lasts fifteen weeks.
An internship with Brink Literacy Project will give you first-hand experience working in the publishing industry. Our programs are designed to bridge the gap between learning about publishing and actually working in the business. With assignments such as editorial writing, social media marketing, industry outreach, and professional correspondence, interns receive expansive training that covers a range of skill and experiences.
Our publishing internships are conducted entirely online so individuals from anywhere in the world can participate as long as they have access to WiFi. For interns who live in Denver, CO, we host local work and publishing events, to which you are invited and encouraged to participate. However, our entire editing curriculum and other internship duties can certainly be carried out remotely. For more information about the program and applications, please take a look at the program page on our website.
Typically, Brink interns work approximately 10 hours a week. Every Brink intern is given a stipend of $300. Additionally, the Elizabeth Wiseman Scholarship will support one candidate per internship cycle with a larger stipend of $1,000 to help increase accessibility to this opportunity. This scholarship was founded in memory of Elizabeth Ann Wiseman, an aspiring poet and artist, whose struggles with mental health and poverty thwarted her efforts to fulfil her dreams.

Dually Noted is Brink Literacy Project's group writing project. Each submission should attempt to match the previous section of the story, in both style and content. Our editors will choose the best 500-word submission every week and add it to the current story. Stories whose quality meets Brink's high quality standard may be published in F(r)iction, our triannual print publication.
SUBMISSIONS OPEN MONDAY 09 OCTOBER 2023
The theme for this cycle of Dually Noted is: "when memories become currency".
Each 500-word section should be a complete story arc. Writers are free to submit stories of any genre, subject, or style (even poetry is welcome!), but submissions should adhere to the theme. Feel free to use your imagination and come up with interesting ways to incorporate this idea. Submissions are due Fridays at 11:59PM PST. We’ll post the best submission the following Thursday!
