Soho Press offers an internship program on a seasonal basis, and we accept applications on a rolling basis. Deadlines for each season can be found below. Interns will work in our Union Square office for 20 hours per week.
Responsibilities include: evaluating slush submissions, providing additional proofreads on finished manuscripts, assisting in the development of publicity and marketing lists, fulfilling promotional mailings, as well as any general office work deemed necessary. Soho is a high-volume, independent press with multiple imprints, and this internship provides 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 interested in adaptive applicants with the ability to learn quickly and prioritize multiple project deadlines. We’re looking for careful readers with basic office (especially phone) skills who are interested in gaining a broad perspective of independent publishing in a small office.
Due to the nature of the position, off-site applicants cannot be considered.
The spring season is four months (January-April), summer is three months (May-August), and fall is four months (September-December).
Requirements: Familiarity with basic office tasks and software, critical and confident reader with a strong understanding of grammar, ability to multitask, and familiarity with Soho Press and our imprints.
