Other duties of the intern will include developing, promoting, and judging the Young Adult Writers Contest; assisting the Head Editor and promotions intern with press releases, blog posts, advertisements, and articles; interviewing past winners and current contestants; receiving and responding to contestant communications; and other duties pertaining to Euterpe’s goal of encouraging and developing young writers.
The intern and the Head Editor will meet at least once a week via Skype to discuss tasks pertinent to the intern’s area of focus, and also to develop the intern’s personal and professional goals and to evaluate the progress on those goals.

The intern will be included in the workings of Euterpe YA and Musa Publishing as both a protégé and professional equal.
