Intern at a Leading Literary Agency


Interns are responsible for reading manuscripts and proposals, writing reader reports, reading and responding to unsolicited submissions, providingeditorial feedback on client proposals, working closely withagents on up-coming and current book projects, writing blog posts and web copy, assisting with subsidiary rights, reviewing legal agreements, and more.  Interns will also be given the opportunity to develop their own ideas for potential clients and projects, and to pitch those ideas to agents in weekly editorial meetings. By the end of the semester, interns will have gained valuable hands-on experience, making them competitive in the job market and enabling them to think like an agent.

Internships are on-site in our New York office and require a commitment of 15-25 hours per week for three months (fall, spring, and summer semesters). We offer academic credit to students as well as a stipend.
