Rowman & Littlefield International is offering an editorial internship based at their office in Kennington, South London, for six to eight weeks, starting in mid-October to mid-December 2016. This opportunity would best suit a recent graduate looking for experience in an academic publishing environment.
The role offers hands-on experience of key editorial tasks across our diverse range of subject areas. You will support commissioning editors by carrying out market and course research, liaising with authors, and carrying out some miscellaneous office administration.
The successful candidate will be able to work with a high degree of autonomy from the outset. She or he will be an enthusiastic self-starter, with strong attention to detail and an appetite to learn about academic publishing.
AND IT’S PAID!

Editorial OR Marketing Internship @ Verso Books (through their Internship programme)
One internship in each period will focus on the editorial process and the other will focus on sales, marketing and publicity but there will be the opportunity to learn about the other department in order to gain a rounded view of the publishing process. Each internship is full-time, and paid at a rate of £9.40 per hour for 42.5 hours per week—Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 6pm (with some evening and weekend work), with paid holiday allowance. E Interns will be expected to learn through practical hands-on experience and will be appraised throughout their time with Verso.
All applications need to include both a CV and cover letter, as separate attachments, with the letter offering specific reasons why the applicant would be well suited to working on Verso’s list. Please email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, please quote: SPRING INTERNSHIP; either EDITORIAL or MARKETING, depending on which dept you wish to apply for; your name. Please make sure that you follow these requirements. NOTE: editorial applications are always oversubscribed. They are particularly interested in candidates who are seeking a career in publishing.
Verso’s internships are intended to act as an introduction to book publishing, as well as to a wider political and intellectual project. Internship responsibilities will include office administration tasks, supporting publicity and marketing projects, assisting book production and conducting editorial research. They will aim to ensure that each intern works closely with a few books through a complete production or publicity cycle. A good knowledge of Verso’s list, an interest in politics, philosophy and history, and a curious and critical engagement with current affairs, will be an advantage.
The internships are very much viewed as a first step to gaining a position within the publishing industry and we have a good record of helping our interns to find permanent work. They will seek to advise interns on job applications and interviews, act as referees—and, where possible, make recommendations to our numerous contacts within the industry.
(this seriously sounds so good guyz)
