|Company Name:||HENERY PRESS|
|Description:||We want only enthusiastic interns interested in publishing; those who wish to learn the whole enchilada, from slush pile submissions to putting that book in the reader’s hands. To get in the door: a mystery-reading bookworm with strong writing skills and plenty of personality. To put frosting on the cake: knows social media skills like nobody’s business (and isn’t afraid to mix metaphors and play with puns).
This is a soup-to-nuts position: reading submissions, creating promo images, working on the blog, writing social media posts (FB, TW), proofreading, filing, special projects, ARC mailings, pre-production formatting, and proofreading (did we mention proofreading?). And everything on deadline.

We believe we’re part of the new generation of independent publishing houses setting the stage for global book publishing. We publish 36 titles a year with multiple USA Today Bestsellers. We have a lot of fun in our Hen House, but we take it quite seriously.
