Part Time Unpaid Internship
Story Merchant / Atchity Productions
We're hiring interns ASAP for a 100% remote internship that will last 16 weeks. This virtual internship involves a range of assistance in the publishing business for Dr. Kenneth Atchity's several Story Merchant companies: Story Merchant (including Story Merchant Books) and The Writer's Lifeline, Inc.
Specifically, interns will primarily provide coverage of novels (manuscripts specifically) under consideration for representation and/or publication. A love for reading and books/manuscripts is mandatory. Please note this is not an internship regarding screenplay coverage. Other tasks may include opportunities to do proposal research, publishing market research, and other duties specific to literary publishing.
This internship will be supporting the parent company, Story Merchant and its publishing imprint: Story Merchant Books, as well as supporting the literary management side of Story Merchant, in which we work with writers to prepare manuscripts for traditional publishing. This internship also supports The Writer's Lifeline, which supports writers who are not yet developed enough for representation.
Those with experience in the field or those who have done coverage before, are preferred. If you don't have experience, we may be willing to give you a sample coverage to test your skills. Opportunity will be sought to further educate the intern in the commercial literary and self publishing fields.
-Returning coverage in a timely manner, energy, drive, responsibility, and a command of literacy in English are essentials.
Intern must be familiar with WORD, MS Excel, Final Draft, Google Drive, and social networking.
-Must commit to completing at least one coverage minimum per week (anywhere from 2-8 hours)
-Must commit to a minimum of sixteen weeks, though longer internships, if for academic credit or career coaching opportunities, are particularly welcome.
Available immediately. Upon application, please submit resume, a writing sample and/or previous coverage sample if you have one.
