Intern for Guernica!

Guernica is now accepting applications for our fall editorial internship program (September 1st to January 1st, 2015). Interns’ involvement with the magazine spans all stages of the production cycle. Primary responsibilities include copy-editing, fact-checking, web production, social media management, and occasional special projects. Writing for the magazine (Guernica Daily in particular) is encouraged. Interns work approximately fifteen hours per week (remotely for the most part) and are expected to attend editorial meetings, held on the second Tuesday of every month in NYC. Because we are an all-volunteer publication, internships are unpaid; however, they may be used for academic credit.

If you are interested in applying for the editorial internship, please submit a cover letter and résumé to internapplicants@guernicamag.com no later than August 20th, 2015. Applicants who interview for internships will be expected to complete a copy-editing test.

"More data has been created and stored since the turn of the millennium than in the entire history of humanity. Metaphors for information overload tend to fall into two categories: those that suggest addiction or lack of self-control, such as infomania, datamania, infobesity, databesity, dataholism, infostress, dataddiction, infovorism, datadithering, data dread; and those that suggest natural disaster, such as datanami, datageddon, dataclypse, data deluge, data smog, infoglut, information saturation, data swamp, drowning in data."

Paul Stephens on the poetics of information overload:

“A year later, I’d just been feeling a surge of joy, when right there in Copacabana I spotted the crowd. A man was selling little monkeys. I thought of the boys, of the joys they gave me for free, unrelated to the worries they also gave me for free, I imagined a circle of joy: ‘Whoever gets this must pass it on,’ and on and on, like a chain reaction running up a trail of gunpowder.”

Clarice Lispector’s “Monkeys.”

A new Guernica issue has landed! In it: LaShonda Katrice Barnett talks queer love in literature, nineteenth-century dildos, and black journalism as black activism; Carly Nairn travels from southern Africa to Vietnam in a story on the plight of the world's rhinos, and asks whether the domestication, and dehorning, of the animals is its own kind of conservation; and interviews, fiction, art, and poetry by Aditi Sriram, Helen Macdonald, Sarah Chayes, Paul Stephens, Mónika Sziládi, Andrew Millward, Annie Liontas, Joshua Bennett, Garous Abdolmalekian, Ahmad Nadalizadeh and Idra Novey.

"I met Johnny in the summer of 1976, the summer of Bicentennial celebrations. I was twenty-eight, newly out, high on the promise of the life ahead of me, and he was forty-nine, a drunk crumbling under the weight of previous disappointments. Naturally we met in a bar. It was a place where I’d had some luck meeting men, but from Johnny I didn’t get sex—I got stories." New fiction by Andrew Malan Milward:

"Warren and I sit back and watch them flirt, our own kind of flirtation. It is like we are on a double date with them, only we hate them."
