Jobs and Scholarships


We don’t currently have any full-time positions available. However, getting involved through our barter/scholarship program, interning, or even volunteering is a great route into literary administration and making connections in the literary world.



The Attic scholarship is a unique barter arrangement. In exchange for two days per week for three months, scholarship students are awarded free tuition for classes taken during the scholarship period.

In 2012, we are looking for experience in the following areas:

1. Professional marketing

2. Financial management

Those interested in discussing scholarship opportunities should contact us directly. Please describe the workshop you are interested in taking and, most important, what specific marketing or social media experience you possess. 

Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis.



The Attic has a long history of working with successful college interns. We invite college students to apply as unpaid interns. Please follow the same criteria listed above for scholarships. Contact us directly




We are always on the lookout for exceptional people to join our remarkable teaching faculty.

A Statement of Our Values

The Attic Institute of Arts and Letters opposes the legitimation of bigotry, hate, and misinformation. As a studio for writers, we do not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. We embrace and celebrate our shared pursuit of literature and languages as essential to crossing the boundaries of difference. To that end, we seek to maintain a creative environment in which every employee, faculty member, and student feels safe, respected, and comfortable — even while acknowledging that poems, stories, and essays delve into uncomfortable subjects. We accept the workshop as a place to question ourselves and to empathize with complex identities. We understand that to know the world is to write the world. Therefore, we reaffirm our commitment to literary pursuits and shared understanding by affirming diversity and open inquiry.
