PSA: Looking for something cool to do next year?

Most of you have probably heard of First Things, and if you haven't, well, this probably won't mean much to you.

I met one of their current Junior Fellows, Nathaniel Peters, this past summer, and after hearing him gush about his experiences living in a brownstone in NYC and working with an editorial staff including Fr. John Neuhaus, I thought I should pass along this opportunity, recently posted on their blog.:

First Things has openings for junior fellows, beginning in the mid to late summer of 2008. These are one- or two-year internships for young writers and scholars interested in religion and public life. The positions offer the opportunity to participate in the magazine’s writing and production; the theological and political discussions the magazine sponsors; and the religious, cultural, and intellectual events that cluster around First Things in New York City. The positions include free housing and a modest stipend.

Send a résumé, two writing samples of an academic nature, and three references to: Anthony Sacramone, Managing Editor, First Things, 156 Fifth Avenue, Suite 400, New York, New York 10010, or by email to ft@firstthings.com.

Applications are due February 15.


This should be of interest to many Rovers and faithful Rover blog readers alike!
