If you’ve ever wanted to help a real publishing house make real decisions about real authors’ books, you might be interested in joining Brandylane as a part-time intern. At Brandylane, our readers assist in reading and evaluating manuscripts as part of our acquisitions team. These unpaid internships typically last four to six months, and require a few hours of work each week, with regular, fixed weekly deadlines. Work can be completed remotely and at your own pace, giving you maximum flexibility in the completion of your assignments. Candidates should possess an excellent command of English grammar, spelling, and punctuation; the ability to read and evaluate manuscripts from 5 to 300 pages weekly; and the ability to follow instructions and established guidelines when formatting their evaluations.
Brandylane accepts internship applications on a rolling basis. If you’re interested in interning with Brandylane Publishers, please email your résumé as an attachment to Robert and Erin with the subject line “Internship Inquiry,” and we will provide you with more information.
