zest

Zest Books is an award-winning leader in young adult nonfiction, publishing smart and edgy books on entertainment, history, science, health, and practical life advice. We publish books that get to the reality of young adult life, rather than the glossy dream world that often dominates pop culture.  Our books are attractively designed, well researched, smart, and easy to read.

We are looking for an intern to work on and update our social media platforms with relevant information on a daily/weekly basis. The amount of updates/posts/tweets, etc…will depend on the platform.

We are looking for someone who is self motivated and interested in nonfiction books, publishing and the topics we publish.

ALL WELCOME; Students should especially consider coming along.

Taylor Brorby is an essayist, poet, and memoirist whose work centers on hydraulic fracking and climate change in western North Dakota.

Lucas Foglia’s photographs challenge the concept that humans and nature operate in opposition, while simultaneously highlighting the relentlessly uneasy, absurdly comedic integrations of our technologies in the natural world.*

Shannon Heffernan is a reporter with WBEZ.  She has covered environmental news and criminal justice issues.  She also reports on poverty, labor, and climate change.

Nat Mengist cultivates equitable, land-conscious partnerships through training in garden education, nonprofit leadership, and post-humanities scholarship.

*Foglia’s third book, Human Nature, was just published by Nazraeli Press. His next solo exhibition opens July 19 at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. (Image beneath title by Lucas Foglia.)
