|Company Name:||SOHO PRESS|
|Description:||Soho Press is seeking a part-time intern for the summer season running from mid-May until the end of August. Interns will work in our Union Square office for 20 hours per week and receive a biweekly stipend.
Responsibilities include: evaluating slush submissions for potential publication, providing additional proofreads on finished manuscripts, creating and streamlining publicity and marketing lists, fulfilling promotional and publicity mailings, as well as any general administrative work deemed necessary. Soho is a high-volume, independent press with multiple imprints, and this internship provides the valuable opportunity to work closely with a passionate staff across the spectrum of the publishing process. Given the amount of work Soho generates, we are only interested in adaptive applicants with the ability to complete tasks across departments, learn quickly, and prioritize multiple project deadlines. We're looking for careful readers with basic office (especially phone) skills who are interested in gaining a broad perspective of independent publishing in a small office.
In addition, we are also looking for one intern to specialize in marketing and publicity tasks in addition to the responsibilities mentioned above. If interested in the publicity/marketing specialization, please mention explicitly in your cover letter.
Due to the nature of the position, off-site applicants cannot be considered.
