Internship Detail

[Back to Internships]

Company Name: W. W. NORTON & COMPANY
Description: Norton Young Readers seeks students and recent graduates for our spring 2020 internship program, which will run from roughly January to April.

Interns will learn about a wide range of editorial tasks, from reading manuscripts and proposals to writing reader’s reports, assisting with marketing plans and social media, handling galley mailings, conducting sales research, and performing basic office tasks like scanning and copying. In general, our interns help our editorial team move projects along from the manuscript stage all the way to publication, and will gain valuable experience and knowledge about the publishing process along the way.
Length of Internship: 3 months, 20 hours per week
Requirements: The ideal candidate is bright, detail-oriented, reliable, well-read and well-written, and above all, wants to learn about children’s book publishing.
Location: New York, NY
Application Due Date: December 3, 2019
Payment: $15/hour
How To Apply For This Internship: If interested, please e-mail a cover letter that includes your availability, your current resume, and a reader’s report of a recently published middle grade or young adult book (released in the last 10 years or so), all collected into a single attached Word file or PDF, to Kristin Allard at NortonYoungReaders@wwnorton.com. Only applicants who follow these instructions will be considered. 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 session is December 3rd, 2019.
