Internships

If you are an undergraduate in eastern Connecticut, central Massachusetts, or Rhode Island, we have one or two openings available during summer, fall, and spring semesters for editorial/production interns. Interns will learn about various aspects of writing and book publishing, from line editing to typesetting to working with agents and publicists. An interested student must have a related major (such as English or journalism) or a writing-intensive liberal arts major (such as history). Excellent English language skills, computer skills, and a broad base of literary knowledge are expected. Candidates should provide unofficial transcripts, a resume, and a writing sample; an interview is also required.

Interns generally work 10 hours per week for 14 weeks during the fall and spring semesters, and 24 hours a week for 6 weeks during the summer (hours are somewhat flexible). The purpose of the internships is to develop skilled and qualified persons for entry level publishing positions.
