The Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency is looking for someone who is hard-working, conscientious, and detail-minded for an unpaid position, working at least 16 hours a week for a minimum of 12 weeks. This minimum is negotiable but is preferred.
Additionally, while there is no guarantee of employment as a result of an internship with the agency, many of our interns have gone on to work in various areas of publishing.
This is a small office, and the intern would be trained in a number of areas, including but not limited to: use of a software program used by a variety of literary agencies and publishers, the nature of the submission process both domestically and internationally, along with other various projects, including book marketing, blog research, contract audits, and database maintenance. Our interns will gain a strong understanding of publishing and the inner workings of a well-established literary agency, with a strong track record both domestically and internationally.
This is not an internship that requires any reading at the office, but the interns are welcome to read submissions and manuscripts on their own time if they choose. Students that are interested in working at a literary agency, please send your cover letter as soon as possible.
