Archipelago Books is a not-for-profit independent publisher of literary fiction and poetry in translation. We are seeking interns with experience and interest in literature, cultural studies, and publishing. Foreign language skills are a plus, and we are looking for applicants interested in all aspects of not-for-profit publishing, including editorial, marketing, publicity, grant writing, copy-editing, and sales. We offer a hands-on experience in a friendly and supportive environment. Interns will receive minimum wage ($15 per hour) and work part-time, two days per week. At the moment, interns are working one day alone in our Brooklyn office (with a masked, in-person training session at the start of the internship and virtual training/support thereafter) and one day from home. This is subject to change, and we would consult with interns about their comfort levels at every step of the process. 

Because of the small size of our staff, our interns assist in most aspects of the daily running of our operation, and will be prepared for entry-level positions in publishing, literary non-profits, and other cultural institutions. Intern tasks include: 

• Writing and designing newsletters, book event announcements, reading group guides, jacket copy, press releases

• Updating the Archipelago and Elsewhere websites

• Researching donor and grant prospects

• Reading and reporting on submissions, & researching authors and translators

• Coordinating mailings (galleys, press releases, catalogs, subscribers, etc.)

• Outreach to professors, booksellers, librarians, reading groups, prison book programs, authors

• Social media outreach and publicity

…and more!

If you are interested in our internship program, please send a cover letter and resume to Emma Raddatz (emma [at] archipelagobooks [dot] org) and Sarah Gale (sarah [at] archipelagobooks [dot] org).
