Soho Press offers an internship program on a seasonal basis, and we accept applications from students and adults at any stage in their career on a rolling basis. Deadlines for each season can be found below. Our interns commit to 20 hours per week either in our NYC office or virtually. The internship is divided into two halves, one half led by our editorial department and the other led by our marketing/publicity department. Interns will have the opportunity to sit in on company meetings and participate in staff-led learning units that cover multiple aspects of the book publishing industry throughout each season.
General responsibilities will include: evaluating select submissions, providing additional proofreads on finished manuscripts, assisting in the development of publicity and marketing lists, fulfilling promotional mailings, and other projects. Soho is a high-volume, independent press with multiple imprints, and this internship offers the valuable opportunity to work closely with a passionate staff across the spectrum of the publishing process. Given the amount of work Soho generates, we are only interested in adaptive applicants with the ability to learn quickly and manage multiple deadlines. We’re looking for careful readers with basic office skills who are interested in gaining a broad perspective of independent book publishing. For more information about what we do and what we publish, we encourage you to visit sohopress.com.
Offsite (virtual) and on-site applicants will be considered.
Each intern will receive a bimonthly stipend.
The spring season is (approximately) four months (January-May), summer is three months (May-August), and fall is four months (August-December).
