TEXAS BOOK FESTIVAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
2023 Texas Book Festival internship applications are now open! We are pleased to offer internships across several departments: Literary Programming, School and Community Programs, Marketing & Design, Event Production, Development, and Communications & Public Relations. Each intern reports to specific staff members; all interns, however, will assist the entire staff in the production of the Festival and its programs as needed. This includes participating in occasional after-hours literary events, with duties including event setup, registration, and clean-up.
Internships require a commitment of 8 hours per week. They will usually work in-person for one four-hour shift and remotely for a second shift each week. Fall internships span from early August to mid-November; the School and Community Programs intern may continue their position into the spring. All interns are required to work the Gala and Festival Weekend (November 9-12, 2023); thus, applicants who can guarantee their availability will be prioritized in the selection process. Internships must be scheduled during the Texas Book Festival’s operating hours (9 AM through 5 PM, Monday through Friday). Interns will receive a $500 stipend on completion of their internship; the School and Community Programs intern will receive an additional $500 stipend if they continue their internship through the spring semester.
