Internships and Volunteering for Philadelphia Stories

Philadelphia Stories is an all-volunteer, home-based operation, so we don’t offer traditional internships in a traditional office. However, we have a variety of tasks that unpaid interns can do from their own computers that still provide valuable insight into the world of publishing.
