For the past 50 years, the Writers Guild Foundation has been dedicated to preserving and promoting the craft of writing for the screen. We host a broad variety of programs to instruct and inspire emerging writers, host an extensive archive of artifacts from the history of screenwriting and maintain the Shavelson-Webb script library - the only library in the world devoted solely to writing for the screen.
WGF seeks a Script Library Intern to assist with processing a small archival collection donated by a screen or television writer. The intern will research the writer and their work, inventory, and summarize the contents. The intern will also engage in outreach by writing a blog post about the experience and creating a digital exhibit about early Writers Guild history, using selected documents and artifacts from our past.
Candidates with an interest in research, writing and history are preferred. Candidates who have previous library experience (college or public) or who have interest in film history are encouraged to apply. A qualified candidate will have excellent organizational skills, be detail-oriented and proficient in Microsoft Office.
