 THE FINEPRINT INTERNSHIP: A Novel Nonfiction Experience

The Premise:
FinePrint Literary Management, a full-service literary agency based in New York City, is accepting internship applications for Spring 2013. More specifically, we are seeking an enthusiastic, self-starting individual to assist, enable, and otherwise entertain agents Janet Reid (me)  and Brooks Sherman (my boon colleague in crime)

The Plot:
The intern will work closely with the above agents and learn about the agenting and publishing process. Duties will include reading and evaluating submissions, writing readers reports, performing general administrative tasks, and dusting Janet's extensive whiskey collection. The intern will also be invited to attend readings, panels, and other industry-related events.

The Protagonist:
Ideal applicants will have completed at least two years of college; have an avid interest in the publishing industry, a strong familiarity with various forms of social media, a working knowledge of frontlist fiction and nonfiction. The commitment is two days/week, in-office.

The Pitch:
Please email your cover letter and resume, both within the body of the email (NO attachments), to Brooks Sherman (Brooks at FinePrintLit com)





this is unpaid :((

This makes me wish I lived in New York.

Do you have to currently be in college/be able to receive college credit?

If only I was 20 years younger and living in the New York City area again.

BW, I'd do it now, and I'm 42.

Is this a paid internship or volunteer?

That's it. I'm moving to NYC right now... more than anything, I want to dust your whiskey collection.

Wait. It's gathering dust?!
