|Company Name:||MASSIE & MCQUILKIN|
|Description:||Massie & McQuilkin, a medium-sized literary agency located in Chelsea, is seeking intelligent and versatile interns interested in a career in book publishing. The ideal candidate will be able to start immediately and will be able to commit 10-15 hours a week in the office, 2 days a week, though we are flexible in regard to scheduling, especially over the school year. Please note that we don't accept remote interns, as we feel that our interns get the most out of being in the office on a regular basis.
The intern's main duties will revolve around managing and responding to unsolicited queries and manuscripts, and will involve evaluating this material with an eye to its quality, relevance to the agent queried, and its viability in the marketplace. A critical eye is necessary for this position. Additional projects may be assigned that will address other aspects of agenting, including foreign rights and contracts. As with any internship, a part of the position will be general administrative work, but we will do our best to work with individual interests. The internship is unpaid, but we are always happy to reward good work with job placement assistance when the opportunity arises.
