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 firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line of "Internship". All e-mailed resumes should be in Word or text format.
