DALKEY ARCHIVE PRESS–with offices in Texas and Illinois–will be offering two paid internships lasting 3-6 months beginning in early September: 1) Editorial, with a focus on proofreading, copy editing, and research, and 2) Marketing/Sales.
The goal of these internships is to provide the experience that will make the interns hireable because of the knowledge and experience they have acquired.
To qualify for the internship, you must already have a substantial reading background in Dalkey Archive books, as well as a general reading background from the Greek and Roman classics to the contemporary. In addition, we will be looking for a track record of your being involved with literary magazines, jobs in bookstores, and other activities that would suggest a level of interest. Foreign language and an interest in translation are pluses, as well as a sophisticated background in social media. Superior writing skills are assumed.
To apply, send a letter that addresses all of the qualifications required, as well as preferences, to the areas listed above. Enclose a complete CV. Send all materials to John O’Brien: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for applying is August 1st.
