Employment, Internships, and Volunteering


The Poetry Project does not have any positions for which we are accepting applications at this time.


The Poetry Project offers a modest stipend for internships open to undergraduates, graduate students, recent grads, and non-grads who are looking for experience in a small, poet-run, not-for-profit arts organization. Applicants should have a strong interest in contemporary poetry. Interns may work for college credit if desired.


Volunteers and interns are cherished at The Poetry Project. Volunteering can mean anything from an annual two-hour shift at the New Year’s Day Marathon benefit to a weekly chair-stacking gig at one of our three reading series. We're always accepting new volunteers and are ever-appreciative of additional support! Please email Roberto Montes at if you'd like to discuss volunteer options.
