We are looking for dynamic, talented, and hardworking interns for the Spring 2014 season. We need interns who are self-starters, eager to learn, and passionate about contributing to our mission of creating books that promote freedom of expression and social justice.
The Feminist Press is 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, and seek out innovative, often surprising books that tell a different story.
Interns gain solid experience in all aspects of publishing and work closely with the staff in each department: editorial, publicity, marketing, and development.
reviewing unsolicited submissions
writing press releases
sending out review copies
submitting books for awards
updating our website and social media accounts
working on internet marketing campaigns
identifying new donors
assisting with fundraising events and book launch parties
general office management and mailing duties
We seek individuals willing to bring professionalism, dedication, strong multitasking and communication skills, a commitment to equality, and a good attitude to the office. 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 Spring 2014 internship begins January 8 and runs until May 14 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 November 1, 2013.
Email your resume and a cover letter explaining why you’d like to intern at the press to intern[at]feministpress[dot]org. In your email, please indicate which days of the week you are available. Include the names and contact information of two references.
Although we carefully consider every application, we are not able to reply to each applicant individually. We will contact qualified individuals directly. Please no phone calls.
