|Company Name:||FOUNDRY LITERARY + MEDIA|
|Description:||For people with a love of reading who are interested in entering the publishing world, either as a future editor or literary agent, the editorial/publishing internship at Foundry is ideal. You will spend your time reading through our submissions (both solicited and unsolicited material); evaluating the material and drafting reader’s reports; compiling editorial comments; and making recommendations to the agents.
You’ll also spend time working on various special projects that will greatly increase your understanding of how the publishing industry works. Among others, projects may include updating editor lists, assisting in making submissions and conducting independent research online or in the media to identify new book ideas and potential authors.
Administrative duties will be kept to a minimum but may include filing, working the front desk, and organizing mailings.
If your school or career center requires it, we can provide academic credit for your time with us. Otherwise, we are able to offer a small stipend for travel expenses and lunch.
