Description: Internships are available at all times of the year.

Editorial Intern: Do at least 1 book review per week (3 paragraphs) - evaluating an incoming submission. It is likely that you might only proofread and closely edit 1 manuscript of a book between 60-400 pages in length during the course of the internship - and this will require close concentration and detailed work. Manuscripts can be poetry or short story collections, novels, as well as non-fiction projects. The internship is unpaid and will be done by email from your home computer. You should have access to and the ability to use Word, Excel and the internet. You will be asked to do a 3-page sample edit as part of the application process, which will be evaluated for errors and for attention to details. The internships are un-paid, but you will be awarded an editing credit for the job(s) that you work closely on. Interns receive a PDF copy of the "Book Production Guide," which offers detailed advice on the various parts of the publishing process.

Design Intern: Design book covers or interiors for fiction and non-fiction books between 60-400 pages. You should have taken at least 1 design class or have created a couple of cover and interior designs on your own. You should be able to understand design guideline with few if any mistakes in the final product without training. You should be closely familiar with InDesign, Publisher, Word, Excel, Photoshop, Bridge and other relevant programs before you begin work. You should also be familiar with book formatting/ design conventions. A design credit will be given in exchange for substantial work performed. Work is done from your home through email communications.

Marketing Intern: Marketing interns should expect to do a lot of busy work finding contact information, sending emails and making phone calls, without payment (unless they can show direct profits from their marketing efforts - which is difficult as libraries don't buy from individual marketers). Interns would also help writers schedule readings, send out and create press releases, and other marketing materials. They can also come up with innovative marketing strategies and otherwise help writers sell their books. Besides potential sales royalties due to high proven sales, this internship is also unpaid and can be done from your home by email. Training will be provided.
