Pub Life: Literary Agents and Publishers Seeking Interns 2014 Edition

By far, my most popular Pub Life post was the one I did last year on available publishing internships. I thought I'd do a 2014 edition for all of you looking for an internship this year. If you're looking for an internship, now is the perfect time to start with summer upon us.

I interned remotely with a literary agency for a year and it was a HUGE benefit to me as a writer. I learned so many valuable lessons that helped me land my own agent and ultimately my book deal with Harlequin. 

Below is a list of agents and publishers looking for interns. If you don't find something now, keep looking! The Internet will be your best friend. I found my internship on Bookjobs. Twitter and agency blogs are also useful. Don't worry if you don't live in New York, remote internships are a great option because you can make your own hours and work from home.

Publishing internships can be very competitive, so don't be discouraged if you're initially rejected. Keep at it! It's like querying--you only need one "yes." Good luck! 

W.W. Norton & Company Internship

Chanel writes New Adult contemporary romances. Her New Adult debut, I SEE LONDON, was released by Harlequin (HQN) on February 3, 2014, followed by a sequel, LONDON FALLING, on July 7, 2014.  She is represented by Kevan Lyon of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.  You can follow her on Twitter and Facebook or on her own website.

  1. This is great--thanks so much for posting.

    A question: how to tell which internships are remote? This would be a preference, more feasible for my current circumstances...
