Nothing in the Rulebook – a literary and new writing blog dedicated to new ideas – is looking for an enthusiastic and passionate individual to join our team as our creative intern.
We are a collective of creatives bound by a single motto: ‘there’s nothing in the rulebook that says a giraffe can’t play football!’ Our news, opinion and interviews are read around the world and attract on average 20,000 unique views a month. We’ve featured writers and artists such as Iain Maloney, Julia Bell, Paul M.M. Cooper, Russ Litten, Asher Jay, Tim Leach, Rishi Dastidar, Eric Akoto, David Greaves, Charlotte Salter and many more.
We are looking for people who think just because there’s one way to do things, it doesn’t mean that’s the only way. We are looking for creative writing and journalism students or bloggers to help us run our project. This means maintaining our social media presence, writing articles for our blog and commissioning and reviewing new work.
Nothing in the Rulebook was established by Warwick University creative writing alumni with over ten years’ experience in journalism, marketing and communications. We’ve won awards for short fiction, poetry and writing and our work has been published in national newspapers, literary anthologies and magazines.
This is a great opportunity to build connections with publishers, literary agents, writers, artists and photographers while learning how literary journalism works from the inside. You’ll gain hands on experience in marketing, social media management, copy-editing and commissioning.
If you’re interested, read some of the stories and articles on Nothing in the Rulebook and pitch us five articles you’d like to write. Send us an example of writing of no more than 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget a brief cover letter and your CV.
You don’t have to be Kurt Vonnegut – what’s most important to us is enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.
We look forward to receiving your applications!
