As a staff member, you not only get to experience the magical and wonderful hands-on process of publishing a journal, but you also get to participate in a highly motivated and creative group of your peers, immerse yourself into the artistic community of the UW, influence what goes into the journal, and make decisions on how the journal will be presented to the public.  

We’re seeking staff members who are:

  • Organized, skilled in time management
  • Enthusiastic about arts and literature
  • Willing to learn about Bricolage and carry out its mission

We do not require prior experience or participation in Bricolage per se, but naturally we do consider any experience as a factor when making our staff selections. Volunteering on the staff to create an issue of Bricolage is a very rewarding experience that will lend itself to future publishing opportunities. All staff members are eligible to receive internship credit through the English department in addition to the professional publishing experience gained. And of course, having your name published on the staff page of a journal that’s been around for forty plus years at a well-known academic institution isn’t half bad either!

We are committed to working towards a diverse and inclusive publishing industry and community. We encourage people of all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, gender and sexual identities, and ability statuses to apply. 

*Please note staff positions are only open to current undergraduate students on the UW Seattle UW campus for duration of the year you are applying to be on staff (if you are on a study abroad during this period of time, you will be unable to fulfill all of your job requirements, and are therefore ineligible to apply for a staff position).

**While UW classes are still online, meetings and events will also occur online. While no in-person events will be happening, as a team we are continuing the production of the journal and want to encourage interns to join in to learn about the process via video calling.
