Remote Acquisition and Editorial Intern

Unpaid Internship

2 years ago


Working with both GenZ and Zenith authors, the acquisitions and editorial intern will primarily be responsible for the following:

  • research trends in the publishing industry
  • be an integral part of our acquisitions team
  • review book proposals and writing review summaries
  • researching talent
  • and other editorial/formatting tasks as needed.

Working with both GenZ and Zenith manuscripts, interns will proofread and edit one or more books over the course of a 5-month period. The number of projects an intern will receive depends on the number of accepted books that need editing. The book(s) edited will be determined based upon the intern’s own interests.

Interns will receive an “editor” or “formatter” credit in the book if the author approves your suggestions. You might also be asked to help with marketing, formatting, writing, or social media tasks depending on the pace of the semester.

If students need to meet an hour quota for an internship course, we are happy to make arrangements and correspond with professors.

Number of positions available



Successful applicants are typically college students, college graduates, or those looking to break into the publishing field. To succeed in this position, you should have strong written and oral communication skills. Experience with social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) is required. Because this is a remote position, being detail-oriented, organized, self-motivated, and able to meet tight deadlines is strongly advised. Experience with content management systems such as WordPress is a plus.
