Description

Eco Books 4 Kids is Canadian company seeking passionate interns with strong organizational skills and an interest in publishing. We are a new kind of publishing company that focuses on creating entertaining, educational children's books that teach kids about wildlife and the environment.

Our first book 'Spirit Bear' is designed to educate children about spirit bear and the ecology of the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. We have also created a series of educational resources to be used in conjunction with the book so that teachers may easily create lesson plans based around the book. For more information on our work, please visit www.ecobooks4kids.com, and visit out our blog at www.ecobooks4kids.wordpress.com. Partial proceeds from our book sales will go to initiatives that protect the spirit bear and it's habitat.

We will be launching 'Spirit Bear' at the beginning of February 2014, and we need assistance contacting newspapers, magazines, online reviewers, celebrities, TV and radio stations. Your role will be to compile contact lists and to reach out to various media outlets about the book and the upcoming launch.

This is an unpaid position, but there is potential to make money from book sales.

Responsibilities

You will be required to compile contact lists of green celebrities, morning shows, radio programs, newspapers and magazines that review or report on children's books. You will be required to reach out to various media outlets with information about the book and the upcoming launch, and to book appearances for the author.
