GenZ Internships

GenZ Publishing offers remote internships for those interested in the publishing industry. We are able to correspond with professors, meet hourly quotas, and reports as needed! Our internships include Editorial, Marketing, Acquisition, and hybrid internships! 

We are currently accepting Summer 2020 applicants for Editorial, Marketing, and Acquisition internships.

We welcome students, graduates, and those looking to break into the publishing industry. 

As this is a remote position, applicants must have reliable access to a computer and internet.

Applicants should be detail-oriented, organized, self-motivated, and able to meet tight deadlines. Please check individual internship requirements. 

Description
GenZ Publishing is an independent book publisher dedicated to giving everyone, young and old, a chance to write for their peers. Our publishing house proudly supports LGBTQ+, POC, and stories of diverse backgrounds.

We publish a wide range of fiction and nonfiction—including cookbooks, memoirs, poetry, paranormal romance, apocalyptic—and we aim to reach readers and authors around the world. Zenith Publishing, our first imprint, focuses on publishing New Adult and Young Adult fiction. 

Working with both GenZ and Zenith manuscripts, interns will proofread and edit one or more books over the course of a 5-month period. The number of projects an intern will receive depends on the number of accepted books that need editing. The book(s) edited will be determined based upon the intern’s own interests.

Interns will receive an “editor” or “formatter” credit in the book if the author approves your suggestions. You might also be asked to help with marketing, formatting, writing, or social media tasks depending on the pace of the semester.

If students need to meet an hour quota for an internship course, we are happy to make arrangements and correspond with professors.

Requirements
To succeed in this position, you should have strong editing and proofreading skills. An editing test is given to interested applicants to determine the intern’s editing skills.

Length: 5 Months (flexible)

Location: Remote

Application Due Date: Open

How to Apply: Please email your résumé to Caitlin Chrismon at [email protected]. If we find that your skills apply to the position, you will receive an editing test and further instructions.
