Summer Internship

imgresI’m looking for an intern for 15-hours/week for the summer. It would be 5 hours/week at my home office in Long Island, doing light office work, filing, organizing, screening queries, and some Internet research. Then it’s an additional 10 hours/week remotely, where you’ll be reading manuscripts and writing reader reports. I represent authors writing picture books, middle grade, and young adult fiction and nonfiction.

635965435126519311-1983774400_book-01.jpgA strong candidate will love reading children’s literature and be comfortable reading across genres. I can offer a $50/week stipend, plus an endless supply of organic, fair trade coffee (help yourself!). You must like dogs (a lot) because I have two of them. Having a sense of humor is important, because we’ll be sitting next to each other for 5 hours. Before applying, please read my past blog posts, so you can see who I am and what I’m about. And familiarize yourself with my clients’ work, so you can see the kind of people and projects I represent. The position runs from June 6th through August 19th, with the possibility of extending through the fall semester, if it works for both of us.

Send a resume and cover letter to linda@emeraldcityliterary.com by May 23rd.
