Plympton is seeking a handful of Literary Fellows to assist with curating and designing a collection of fiction and nonfiction shorts for the New York Public Library's permanent digital collection. We're looking for literature-lovers and avid readers, especially readers excited about short-form works. Diverse reading tastes are highly encouraged. This is an excellent paid opportunity for anybody looking to jump-start a career in publishing.
Work will begin at the start of 2017 and will continue into summer. Fellows work remotely and hours are flexible, though there will likely be varying levels of work and time commitment depending on the phase of the project. The responsibilities will naturally be reading-based: searching for noteworthy shorts, close-reading pieces with an eye for the collection as a whole, and collaborating with other Literary Fellows throughout the curation process.
If you want to participate in the collection but don't necessarily want to commit to in-depth reading, you're welcome to suggest stories and nonfiction pieces you would like to see permanently preserved at the NYPL. Shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org!
