Beatdom and CoRP are looking for interns to help with the seventh issue of Beatdom magazine, as well as with future CoRP projects. The successful applicants will be listed as editors in the next issue of the magazine, and will be given positive references (assuming they carry out their duties adequately) to help them in this difficult business.
Although not much information is available on the Beatdom website right now, interns will be offered (although not required) the chance to help with CoRP projects.
Beatdom’s sixth issue will soon be with us. The release date is tentatively set at 2nd April.
This issue will feature CoRP authors Edaurdo Jones and Kyle Chase, and will be edited by David S. Wills.
The theme of this issue is “Travel,” and as such the essays in the magazine revolve around the relationship between the Beat Generation and travel. There is also previously unpublished work by Alene Lee – Mardou Fox of Jack Kerouac’s The Subterraneans – and an interview with Scroobius Pip.
