    1. Hi A Lot Left to Learn,
      Thanks for expressing interest! Currently, 13th Floor Magazine only offers internships through UNO’s Writer’s Workshop Department and English Department. These internships usually deal strictly with writing and/or public relations work. Though we wish we could offer graphic design internships, we currently do not have enough projects or task forces for graphic design. If that ever changes, we will make it known on our blog and social media.
