One Story is seeking a paid apprentice to join our team from September 2022–May 2023. The apprentice will have a chance to learn about all aspects of a literary organization, including the editorial process, grant writing, and online educational programming.


This is an entry-level position for those looking for a career in publishing with a focus not just on editorial work, but also on future leadership roles in nonprofit management and online education.

Candidates should be creative, eager to work with a small, dedicated team, and have a demonstrated interest in the literary community and publishing world.


We will provide an opportunity to gain valuable skills and forge connections with peers and potential employers in the industry. In addition to experience gained from day-to-day tasks, the apprentice will receive specialized training in marketable skill sets such as design and production, project management, social media and marketing, proofreading and copyediting, online pedagogy best practices, and others. The goal is to leave their time with One Story with industry connections and a diverse and varied set of skills that will make their resumes stand out to future employers.


This is a hybrid position. Candidates must reside within commuting distance of our office in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
