Positions available for students of literature, art, and graphic design
Triple Canopy is an online magazine, workspace, and platform for editorial and curatorial activities. Working collaboratively with writers, artists, and researchers, Triple Canopy facilitates projects that engage the Internet’s specific characteristics as a public forum and as a medium, one with its own evolving practices of reading and viewing, economies of attention, and modes of interaction. In doing so, Triple Canopy is charting an expanded field of publication, drawing on the history of print culture while acting as a hub for the exploration of emerging forms and the public spaces constituted around them. Triple Canopy is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

Volunteer and internship duties
Triple Canopy is seeking assistance with its editorial, website development, design, and public programming. Volunteers and interns take an active role in the editorial and production work that goes into each issue of the magazine, as well as assisting with the development of public programs and the pursuit of grants. Depending on a candidate's interests and abilities, duties may include: soliciting, evaluating, and coordinating the execution of articles and artist projects; taking part in editorial meetings; research assistance; coordinating and publicizing events; image editing and formatting; HTML, Flash, and Ruby on Rails coding and design work; devising and implementing new features for the website. Most participants contribute between 8 and 12 hours per week, for the duration of a school semester or summer. All positions are unpaid, however students may earn university credit through participating institutions.
