2175 S. Jasmine Street
Application Deadline: Available Year-round
Position: Part-time, Unpaid
DescriptionBlueInk Review is a fee-based service devoted to reviewing self-published books. We work with freelance critics across the country to provide the kind of honest, objective book reviews that self-publishers have little access to in the mainstream press. Reviews run on our website and are distributed to various other sites and service providers.
While learning about the self-publishing world, you will learn about the traditional publishing world and the ways the two have come to intersect in our modern age.
Work hours are flexible. We are seeking a commitment of a minimum of 10-15 hours a week. Interns must have their own laptops. The internship is unpaid.
If interested, please submit resume and writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ResponsibilitiesWe are a small but growing company, which means that, as an intern, you will have the chance to help out in every facet of our business. Yes, we need administrative help. But we are also looking for assistance keeping our website current and marketing our service to authors and the larger publishing community. During your internship, you will have the opportunity to write possible blog entries, website landing page copy, author interviews, reviewer bios, press releases and copy for advertising and marketing campaigns. You will also help strategize our brand positioning on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
RequirementsWe are looking for someone who:
• Has impeccable writing skills
• Understands social media
• Is easy to work with and comfortable taking direction
• Is studying marketing, communications, journalism or English
• A working knowledge of the publishing world is a plus, though not required
