Two editorial interns wanted

Tor Books is seeking two editorial interns for the spring 2010 semester. The interns in this position will gain insight into the process of publishing a book at every stage, from acquisition and contracts through production and, finally, the finished product. They will learn about acquisitions, editorial review, scheduling, rights and territories, catalogue, and sales. There will also be opportunities to read and evaluate unsolicited manuscripts. While this is an editorial internship, the position will involve interaction with other departments including Production, Marketing, Ad Promo, and Publicity. Our interns have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of genre fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller, mystery, and romance.

Duties will include proofreading, evaluating manuscripts and writing reader reports, and various administrative tasks (photocopying, filing, etc.). The candidate will be handling sensitive documentation relating to all aspects of the publishing process. Our interns are encouraged to ask questions and to be proactive.

We are seeking candidates who are outgoing, with excellent organizational and computer skills and a passionate interest in learning about publishing.

Interns must receive academic credit for their work and must make a commitment of at least two full days or three half days per week.  There is no financial compensation for Tor internships.

Interested applicants should submit a resume and cover letter to Melissa Frain at melissa.frain@tor.com.

(Tor offices are located in the Flatiron Building in New York City.)
