Internships at Patrol are disorganized and entirely unpaid. On the other hand, they are remote, flexible, and promise a wealth of knowledge in the areas of marketing, publishing, writing, art, and theology. It also includes the perk of free books, films, and not to mention our gratitude.
Duties include reading submissions, responding to emails, proofreading, researching, project managing, maintaining our social media channels, and if you’re in the area, attending packing PAR-TAYS!
