Godine offers general internships designed to expose students and recent graduates to the full range of the operations of an independent publishing house. In addition to general office administration (mail, phones, etc.) interns work with our staff on a daily basis on tasks in all departments: editorial, publicity, marketing & sales, and production. Interns are hired for Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
Applicants must have two years of undergraduate work completed. We are looking for people with strong basic office skills (Word, Excel, FileMaker Pro) and good basic proofreading and editorial skills. Experience with graphic arts software (Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator) is welcome, but is not a prerequisite. We require a minimum commitment of 20 hours a week for 3-4 months. Internships are unpaid, class credit may be available.
Applications for summer internships should arrive no later than February 28. Applications for fall internships are due by July 15, and applications for spring should arrive by November 21. A writing sample is not necessary.
