Austin Bat Cave seeks teaching interns for the spring semester (January 13 to May 18, 2012). Teaching interns will be responsible for development and management of in-school and after-school creative writing workshops as well as the collection and editing of creative work produced by students. Teaching interns will also act as assistants to guest workshop instructors and the liaison between the workshop and the program director. Interns work ten to twelve hours per week (including workshop preparation) and are responsible for attending weekly program development meetings. Internships are currently unpaid; however, they may be used for academic credit. If interested, please email cover letter and resume (or CV) to internships@austinbatcave.org. Applications for the spring semester must be received by December 14, 2011.

Austin Bat Cave is an Equal Opportunity Employer (501c3) and encourages diversity in the workplace.

WHAT WE OFFER:

We offer two types of internship programs at the Austin Bat Cave. A teaching internship, geared toward those looking to learn and practice the skills necessary to become a Teaching Artist, and an administrative internship, geared towards those looking to gain real-world experience in the administration and operation of a non-profit organization.

Both internships offer experience and opportunity for growth and creative input. The following will be provided for each intern regardless of type:

*free attendance to all Bat Cave events (Story Department, fundraising events, Book launch parties)

*master class workshops and seminars (lead by Austin writers and professionals)

*Interns’ Night-Out (a chance for all interns and staff to get together outside the working environment doing fun things like bat tours!)

*concrete experience working as a teaching artist or in non-profit administration (not just making copies and doing grunt work)
