Internship Detail

[Back to Internships]

Description: The Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency seeks an editorial intern to read queries and manuscripts, help us choose clients, offer suggestions/edits, manage correspondence, and do some general office work. (I promise you won't be stuck xeroxing for hours a day--90 percent of the internship is reading.)

One to two days a week would be ideal.

Because our system is electronic, there will be many days when you can work from home--reading, evaluating, and commenting on manuscripts via email.

Please know that we value written communication over experience. Show us your written voice in your cover letter.
Length of Internship: For the following semester--though we're flexible. We try to have a new batch of interns every semester.
Requirements: Strong written and verbal communication skills. Patience with authors. Ability to handle the stresses of a busy, successful office--and stay kind. We pride ourselves on maintaining good relationships with our authors, including those attempting to work with us.
Location: Upper West Side (Central Park West and 71st Street), Manhattan. It's a large home office, which means we have a kitchen you (and sometimes our cookbook authors) can use.
How To Apply For This Internship: Please send a cover letter (in the body of the email) and resume (attached as a Word document) to No calls, please. Before your interview, please look at our site and be ready to talk about what projects are most interesting to you.
