We offer internships designed to provide an understanding of the role an agent plays, with the aim of preparing interns for their first entry-level position at another agency or publishing house. We attempt to develop strong administrative skills, improve reading and editing for publication, provide general knowledge of the industry, the publishing process, contract terms and negotiation, subrights, and other core aspects of the business. Internships usually run for 3-6 months and require 2-3 days in the office per week. If interested, submit a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
