We are currently looking for dynamic, talented, and hardworking 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: Editorial, Publicity/Marketing, and Development; sharing administrative responsibilities.
assisting in social media platform management
reviewing unsolicited manuscript submissions
proofreading manuscripts and tracking changes
mailing 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 Simon & Schuster, Penguin/Random House, W.W. Norton & Company, Oxford University Press, Verso Books, Signs: Journal of Women and Culture, Women Make Movies, On the Issues, the Nation, and others.
The spring 2017 internship begins January 9, 2017, and runs through May 26, 2017. The internship requires a commitment of three days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Although we are flexible with schedules, we do ask for a consistent weekly time commitment. Interns will receive a small daily stipend to offset the cost of transportation within New York City.
Deadline to apply is November 1, 2016.
There are new internship sessions every spring, summer, and fall. Please check back for updated application deadlines periodically.
