Unpaid literary agency internship

I'll post this later on actual job sites, etc, but at the moment, I'm sticking it up on my blog.

Wanted: Unpaid intern for the L. Perkins Agency

The L. Perkins Agency, an AAR-member literary agency is looking for a smart, hard-working, book-loving intern for our Freehold, NJ office. As part of our internship program, the L. Perkins Agency offers a comprehensive introduction to the world of book publishing. Responsibilities include evaluating manuscript submissions, writing pitch and revision letters, communicating with authors and editors, and learning the ins and outs of the publishing process.

Although the internship is unpaid, we'll be happy to work with your university or graduate school to get you course credit for this internship.

This is the perfect opportunity for a student interested in eventually landing a job with a publishing house or a literary agency.

We represent mainly genre fiction, as well as pop culture-based nonfiction. A love of genre fiction is a must for any intern.

We're a young, fun, and dynamic place to work. As our Freehold office is a home office, we offer a welcome respite from the structured formality of a corporate setting. Please do not apply if you are allergic to cats.

If you're interested in this position, please contact Jenny Rappaport at, with the subject line of "Internship". All e-mailed resumes should be in Word or text format.

Have you tried contacting local colleges and seeing if they have interenship programs as part of their courses? I had one as part of my computer course.

Not to take away from larger issues, but are you ever going to make a decision on those sonnets? It's been close to a month now.

Does liking cats have anything to do with Zoe going to the office?? We have office cats, too. Cool.

And perhaps this unpaid intern might be ardently seeking a series which might redefine 'fantasy.'

One could only hope.

(and yes, waiting patiently in the hinterlands of Kansas)
