Publishing Interns



Woop woop! Internships time yaaaaay!

Firstly, there are these Ebury Internships, which I don’t really get.

Editorial Assistant Intern (Fiction) – one day a week for a year, which is perfect if you’re still studying but sucks for everyone else.

Apply with a CV and covering letter in which you should answer the following question: “Which current commercial fiction publishing trend do you think is the most exciting and why?”

Editorial Assistant Intern (Enterprises) – also one day a week for a year, and this one is more about brands.

Apply with a CV and covering letter in which you should answer the following question: “Which branded books (e.g. restaurant and museum collaborations) would you have loved to work on/been involved in?”

Both of these close TOMORROW.🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨 So get on it.

Okay, next, this one at Crimson Publishing: Production Editorial Assistant Internship.

It’s another one year internship in Bath! You need a degree, boo; but it is paid! £13,200 to be exact. Full spec at the link above.
