Part Time Unpaid Internship
Donadio and Olson was founded in 1969 by Candida Donadio. With such established authors and estates as Mario Puzo, Peter Matthiessen, Robert Stone, and Nelson Algren, this agency has a solid track record of representing both legendary authors as well as contemporary literary talents like Chuck Palahniuk.
The intern's duties include reading manuscripts, writing reader's reports and rejection letters, handling permissions requests and contracts, filing contracts and general correspondence, sending manuscripts to publishers (both foreign and domestic), updating our blog and Twitter accounts, answering telephone and email requests, and other office duties. Interns play a critical role at Donadio, are involved in all aspects of the office's work, and are encouraged to take on challenging projects. This internship is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in publishing to learn about many different aspects of the industry.
The ideal candidate will have a strong literary background. Ideally, the candidate will have taken courses in both literature and creative writing. Prior experience in a publishing house or at a literary agency is helpful, but not required.
A modest stipend payment will be provided for the intern.
