We're looking for Fall interns!

Interested in learning the inner workings of an established independent book publishing house in downtown Boston? Do you want exposure and experience to everything from editing and proofreading to sales/marketing and production projects?

If so, we're looking for a few excellent interns for the Fall!

Godine offers general internships designed to expose students and recent graduates to the full range of operations of an independent publishing house. In addition to general office administration (mail, phones, etc.) interns work with our staff on a daily basis on tasks in all departments: editorial, publicity, marketing & sales, and production. Beyond that, interns are generally assigned a long-range project that is tied more closely to a specific title on our list.

While preference is given to candidates with an interest in editorial work, students with an interest in the business side of publishing are encouraged to apply. We are looking for people with strong basic office skills (Word, Excel, FileMaker Pro), and good basic proofreading and editorial skills. Experience with graphic arts software (Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator) is welcome but is not a prerequisite. We require a minimum commitment of 20 hours a week for 3-4 months. Internships are unpaid. A writing sample is unnecessary.

Applications for fall internships are due by July 15. Please send your resume and cover letter (by post) to our new address:

David R. Godine, Publisher
Fifteen Court Square, Suite 320
Boston, MA 02108

No phone calls or emails, please.
