There are many ways to get involved with Femspec. This page will periodically update with our specific needs and roles to be filled, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have ideas or questions. We pride ourselves on being gate-openers.

Current opportunities:

  • Judges for the "Best of the Last Five Years" contest

  • Smashwords Project Manager

  • Peer Review Coordinator

  • Creative Editors

  • Advertising Manager

  • Grants Writer

  • Fundraiser


There are many opportunities to work on the journal along with our team of scholars, professionals, activists, writers, and students. We can develop a program suited to fit your interests and lifestyle. To apply, please send an email to Professor Batya Weinbaum with your name, contact information and a letter detailing your goals, experience, skills and what you would like to do at Femspec. Following your application letter we will set up a time to do an interview with you via Skype. 

This internship is on a purely volunteer basis and as such you will not be compensated monetarily but instead with skills and experience that will last a lifetime. We do require a $100 deposit upon acceptance into the program that will be returned to you upon completion. This helps us cover any materials and unfinished work that is left if you decide to end your internship early. We also require that you subscribe to Femspec for the entire time you are interning with us. 

If you would like more information on what an internship is like at Femspec, please read the following from several of our past interns. We look forward to hearing from you!
