We are looking for someone interested in learning about all aspects of publishing. As literary agents, we work as liaisons between authors and publishers, and so have a comprehensive vantage on the industry. An intern will gain a strong understanding of the literary agency business and the publishing process–from query to submission to publication.

Candidates should be motivated, well-organized, responsible, and have excellent communication skills. Some experience critically evaluating fiction and non-fiction work is necessary, as well as a love of books, an extensive knowledge of current titles, and a desire to work in the publishing business. Interns should be willing to commit 15-20 hours per week for a minimum of three months.

To apply for an internship with us, please email with a resume and cover letter to at Jacey Mitziga’s attention. Please be sure to include ‘resume’ in the subject line.
