Fairbank Literary Representation
428 Union Street
DescriptionLiterary agency recently relocated to Hudson New York needs two to three part-time interns on an on-going, revolving basis. We represent authors and books in literary fiction, memoir, narrative nonfiction, pop culture, humor, architecture, food, and design. Next hiring period is for Spring 2013 semester (late January - April). Will also consider paid summer help applicants for mid- May through August 2013.
ResponsibilitiesThe ideal candidate is organized and detail oriented, is a strong writer, proof reader, and critical thinker, has an appreciation for both mainstream and literary works, and is interested in all aspects of writing and publishing.
Specific duties will include administrative tasks (filing, mail, phone, scheduling, maintenance of library and company website), reading and responding to author queries and manuscripts, research (mostly web-based), and assistance in preparing content (textual and graphic) for in-house books. Microsoft Word skills are required; Excel, ACT, and Photoshop skills will be helpful but are not required—we will provide training as needed. Any web design experience or graphic design experience a plus!!
In return, intern receives a structured, educational look into the world of modern publishing.
This is an unpaid internship, with flexible hours—2 to 3 days and 10 to 15 hours per week. We will help college students acquire academic credit where allowed by their institutions. We also provide a travel stipend, depending on the situation.
This is a great opportunity for a well-rounded candidate with intelligence, motivation, discipline, creativity, organizational skills, and (most importantly) an absence of cat allergies, as we have a resident cat.
