Spring Intern - Editorial
Marvel EntertainmentNew York, NY
Full Time Unpaid Internship
Interns in Marvel's editorial department have the opportunity to act as an apprentice on tasks directly related to comic book production. Like most office interns, they perform some clerical duties, such as filing and shredding sensitive documents, but they also format scripts, collect reference and perform research for editors to send to artists and writers, check lettering drafts for corrections, and write recap pages. Those that show interest and diligence are also given opportunities to review colors, review line art for balloon placement, and share their thoughts about scripts.
ResponsibilitiesEditorial interns should be ready to scan papers to pdfs, transcribe notes, or read stories prior to their publication to ensure there are no continuity or spelling errors. The intern is an additional set of eyes for the book to pass under before going to the printer. Time management and task prioritization are also essential since editorial interns work with multiple editors. Interns are responsible for organizing their day and for seeking out places and times when their assistance is needed.
