Red Sofa Literary is looking to add an interns (unpaid) for the spring and summer of 2017!
We’re a Twin Cities-based literary agency, with national reach, working with authors and publishers across many genres and profiles. We are seeking an intern who is driven and interested in pursuing a career in publishing at an agency or otherwise.
The interns will support the agents in a variety of tasks and responsibilities including:
-Beta reading and manuscript/proposal evaluation
-Agency social media upkeep and proactive reader engagement, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr
-Marketing efforts for our authors’ books
-Upkeep of the RSL event calendar, Wiki page, writing the RSL newsletter, and message board
-Research of editors worth pitching for specific projects
We plan on including one Twin-Cities based intern, as well as one position that can be remote. There will be weekly meetings via Google Hangouts.
If you believe you’re the person for this internship, please send a cover letter and resume to email@example.com with the subject line “Summer Intern Application.”
We will also be participating in the Minnesota Book Publishers’ Roundtable Internship Fair on 3/28/17, should you be interested in seeing other opportunities locally (in addition to us).
