Page Street editors Ashley Hearn and Lauren Knowles are looking to build a team of interns to work within our growing YA department!
Page Street Publishing is one of the fastest growing independent publishers in the US. We are a quality-driven publisher, committed to finding passionate authors whose stories push readers to new heights. Distribution is through Macmillan, and our YA imprint launches in January 2018 with Joanna Ruth Meyer’s Beneath the Haunting Sea and Lynn Slaughter’s It Should Have Been You.
POC, LGBTQ+, neuroatypical, and disabled applicants are highly encouraged. As well as high school and college-aged students!
Please note, this is a remote, unpaid internship. However, substantial training and mentorship will be provided. This is an opportunity to learn more the publishing process, as well as build your editorial skills. Regular access to the internet will be necessary. Applicants for the internship should have 8-10 hours per week available, though the internship is somewhat flexible. Prior experience in publishing is not required, but applicants should be well-read across the genres in YA and seriously interested in publishing as a career.
Tasks include reading submissions, writing reader reports, helping to proofread galleys, research comparison titles, fulfill administrative tasks, and attend monthly virtual team meetings. Interns will work directly with Ashley and Lauren, as well as Page Street’s list of authors, including Joanna Ruth Meyer, Lynn Slaughter, Stacey Filak, Candice Montgomery, Erin Cashman, and Naomi Hughes.
To apply, please email a resume and cover letter detailing what you’d bring to the team, what you are hoping to get out of the internship, your reading interests (including top 5 favorite recent reads), and your related experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include YA INTERNSHIP and your name in the subject line.
Applications close Nov. 7, 2017. Internship period starts after the holidays in January.
