Work for Us

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Brink staffers, you’ll quickly learn that almost every one of them was an intern once upon a time. By growing our staff team in this way, we raise up new and underrepresented voices within the heart of our organization. While our internships are a great way to get a crash course in the literary industry, they can often provide a path to what can become a long and rewarding professional relationship.

Working with Brink helped me to confirm a genuine interest in the field of editing and publication. While before I was not sure if this industry was something I could make a career out of, after my experiences through Brink I feel prepared, confident, and motivated to continue pursuing opportunities in this field. I truly did find the level of assignments to be an effective bridge between theory and industry work.

Interning at Brink has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had as a writer. I’ve been able to “peer behind the veil” of the literary publishing industry as well as learn and grow as an editor under the expertise of phenomenal teachers, colleagues, and friends. More importantly, I think, I’ve found myself immersed in a community of people who are genuinely passionate about the work that they do, about the written word, and about the importance of stories to the world.
