Internship Alert: Publishers Weekly

Intern Wanted

 

Publishers Weekly’s Book Review Department is looking for an intern for the Fall semester. The positions are part-time, but if you love books and are considering a career in book or magazine publishing, Publishers Weekly’s Book Review department is the best place to learn about these rapidly changing industries.

Interns will have the opportunity to:

• Work closely with review editors
• Write, fact-check, and edit reviews and short author interviews

Interns will also help staff our very busy bookroom, which receives hundreds of books a week. Your job will include:

• Unpacking books and trafficking them to editors and reviewers, and helping maintain a log of assignments
• Doing liaison work with publishers (requesting review copies, art, etc.)

You must:

• Learn tasks quickly
• Be organized and detail-oriented
• Follow through and meet tight deadlines

If you would like to interview for an intern position, e-mail Drucilla Shultz, Bookroom Editor, at DShultz@PublishersWeekly.com, by Aug. 7th 2015, and put “Fall internship” in the subject line. Please attach a resume and a writing sample or link to one. (A class paper is fine.)
