|Company Name:||W. W. NORTON & COMPANY|
|Description:||The trade editorial department and Liveright imprint at W. W. Norton & Company seek bright, detail-oriented, and reliable candidates who enjoy reading, write well, and, above all, want to learn about book publishing, to participate in our summer 2017 internship program, which will run from May through August.
Interns in these departments are asked to do everything from read manuscripts and proposals to write reader’s reports, assist with permissions for forthcoming books, handle galley mailings, draft catalog and jacket copy, and perform basic office tasks like filing and copying. In general, their job is to help the editorial assistants move projects along from the manuscript stage all the way to publication.
|Length of Internship:||3 months, 20 hours per week|
|Location:||New York, NY|
|Application Due Date:||March 10, 2017|
|How To Apply For This Internship:||If interested, please e-mail a cover letter, resume, and a reader’s report of a recently published book (last 10 years or so), all collected into a single attached file, to Ashley Patrick (email@example.com). Reader’s reports are usually about 1-2 single-spaced pages in length and should include a brief synopsis, a discussion of any editorial concerns, a consideration of the book’s potential readership, and any other relevant insights about whether the book is worthy of publication.
Our application deadline for the spring term is March 10, 2017.
