We are currently accepting internship applications for autumn 2018 (September to November). Interns get to work directly with the whole team and are a valued part of our organisation. During their time with the Festival, interns will gain insight into literature and arts management, assisting with tasks ranging from editing, marketing and PR to event coordination.

Internships are available on a part-time or full-time basis and are unpaid.

If you are a student or a recent graduate and are interested in becoming an intern at HKILF, please email your cover letter and resume to The application deadline for our 2018 autumn internship is 24 August.

If you are no longer a student but are interested in volunteering for us on a regular basis, please see our volunteers page for more information.
