Careers
Editorial, Publishing Services, and Contracts & Rights Internships
Candlewick Press, a leading publisher of books for children, offers internships in the fall, spring and summer according to the needs of various departments. An independent publisher, we are a dynamic company that provides excellent opportunities to acquire firsthand knowledge of the publishing industry. We are looking for motivated, conscientious, and dedicated individuals who are eager to learn about the children’s publishing industry and be part of a high-energy, creative team. Internships are determined on a need basis so there is a chance the department may not need an intern each semester.

When feasible, the following internships are offered:

Editorial - interns read and report on manuscripts, attend relevant meetings, perform library and bookstore research as needed, and assist editors with a variety of clerical and editorial duties.

Publishing Services - interns proofread both published and upcoming titles, organize and review foul files, review advance books for corrigenda, facilitate the circulation of book materials between the various departments, assist with various production needs, and perform administrative tasks as needed.

Contracts and Rights - interns learn about the legal and financial aspects of book publishing through working with publishing agreements, royalty statements, and payment information.

The desired time commitment is typically about fourteen hours a week. Candidates must have excellent organizational skills as well as attention to detail. Our office is located at 99 Dover Street in Somerville, MA. These positions do not offer any monetary compensation, however in exchange, we offer an invaluable opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the publishing world and make important professional contacts. Internships can be used for college credit. Interested candidates should e-mail a résumé and cover letter specifying the position and semester of interest to the attention of the internship coordinator at interns@candlewick.com. Application deadlines for spring, summer, and fall semesters are December 5, April 5, and July 5 respectively.
To Apply: submit a resume and cover letter (noting salary requirements when applying for a full-time position) via e-mail to interns@candlewick.com, referencing "Editorial, Publishing Services, and Contracts & Rights Internships"
