More Information

The Unspoken Word, a local literary non-profit focused on providing diverse voices with a venue for sharing poetic works. We are seeking a social media & marketing intern for 2017-2018.

We are seeking a driven & interested student intern to manage our social media presence including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We also hope to work together to teach the intern about graphic design, public relations, guerrilla marketing, and the creation of marketing materials. We host one to three events every month, ranging from open mics to poetry slams, workshops to community fundraisers. We often work in tandem with other non-profits who operate in fields of social justice in Charleston, SC.

Our organization provides an independent home for the poetic arts through regular readings, workshops, and community fundraisers. The Unspoken Word offers open mics, poetry slams, workshops, and community engagement events. We are dedicated to building community through the poetic arts and using venues to provide a space for diverse voices. We hope to make an impact on our city and our culture. We seek to create avenues for performance, representation, and publication for voices too often forgotten by mainstream literary institutions. We pair emerging and seasoned writers in workshop settings as well as cooperative writing groups and in doing so provide one another with the encouragement and faculty to produce challenging, urgent poetry.

The Unspoken Word intern would be expected to work 3-6 hours a work managing various social media platforms and brainstorming fresh marketing strategies. They would need to be available for live events on the second Friday and final Tuesday of each month. We would encourage them also to take part in the Free Verse Festival, Charleston’s first poetry festival. We are working alongside Charleston Poet Laureate Marcus Amaker and South Carolina Poet Laureate Marjory Wentworth on this project.

The position will allow the intern to work alongside members of the board of directors and other poets, actors, and artists involved with The Unspoken Word. The position will provide experience in marketing, grant-writing, event organizing, publication, and artist management. We are seeking students interested in a future in non-profit work or a career involving the literary arts. The internship would be perfect for anyone majoring in English, Communications, or Arts Management; we are open, however, to students from any background and academic discipline.
