We have two primary areas of work where we will need help: one is editorial book production, and the other is social media, research, and outreach. We could use two separate interns, each working about two days a week, or one person working about three days a week if that person has an interest in both areas.

  • Proofread and cold read adult anthologies, teacher materials, K-12 student fiction/nonfiction materials, catalogs, or website materials
  • Review/QA ebooks on multiple platforms
  • Shadow/assist Editorial Services person on cross-team projects (examples include book projects, professional development offerings, videos/webinars, website revisions)

We are committed to providing our interns with meaningful work, and the more abilities and interests the intern has, the more we will have for that person to do!
