About FP

Internships

We are looking for dynamic, talented, and hardworking summer interns. Our ideal candidate is a self-starter, eager to learn, and passionate about contributing to our mission of creating books that promote freedom of expression and social justice.

We are an independent, nonprofit publishing house based in Manhattan with a small, dedicated staff. We publish exciting authors who share an activist spirit and a belief in choice and equality.

Interns will work closely with mentors in one of the following departments: Publicity, Editorial, Marketing, Foreign Rights, and Development; sharing administrative responsibilities.

Responsibilities include:

assisting in social media platform management
reviewing unsolicited manuscript submissions
proofreading manuscripts and tracking changes
sending out review copies
preparing award applications
developing online marketing campaigns
researching and identifying new donor prospects
assisting with fundraising events and book launches
general office management and mailing duties

Interns work closely with one another so a willingness to collaborate and share responsibilities is essential. Familiarity with our books is helpful, but is not required.

Former FP interns are now at Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Random House, W.W. Norton & Company, Verso, Signs: Journal of Women and Culture, Women Make Movies, On the Issues, the Nation, and the Huffington Post.

The Summer 2014 internship begins May 21 and runs until August 20 and requires a commitment of three days a week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Interns will receive a small daily stipend to offset the cost of transportation within New York City.

Deadline to apply is March 1, 2014.
