DeFiore and Company offers internships in the Spring, Summer and Fall.
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 great understanding of the literary agency business and the publishing process–from query to submission to publication. Duties may include: reading and responding to queries and manuscripts, writing reader reports, filing, sorting mail and basic office support.
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 strong interest 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 firstname.lastname@example.org at Jacey Mitziga’s attention. Please be sure to include ‘resume’ in the subject line.
