HELLO EVERYONE! Hows ya week?? I had the RooftopBookClub yesterday, the SYP bingo tomorrow AND all the fun of my new job so it’s good! I’m going to assume yours is great too.
Anyway, I know you’re here for the internships and not my babbling so here they are:
Literary agents Curtis Brown are looking for an intern to spend three months in their books department! They don’t go into much detail regarding what you’ll be doing, sayong just
“you will work with agents and their assistants to gain hands-on experience of literary and talent agenting, publishing and the media. You should have good administrative skills and genuine enthusiasm for and interest in the industry.”
Seems alright! You’ll be paid £50.25 a day and will work 9:30 till 6 for the duration of your placement. Applicants must have the right to work in the UK and “must be a graduate or currently studying as an undergraduate.” (SO CLOSE. SO CLOSE TO BEING PERFECT. CURTIS BROWN YOU ARE NOT HELPING WITH DIVERSITY)
