Do at least 1 book review per week (3 paragraphs) – evaluating an incoming submission. It is likely that you might only proofread and closely edit 1 manuscript of a book between 60-400 pages in length during the course of the internship – and this will require close concentration and detailed work. Manuscripts can be poetry or short story collections, novels, as well as non-fiction projects. The internship is unpaid and will be done by email from your home computer. You should have access to and the ability to use Word, Excel and the internet. You will be asked to do a 3-page sample edit as part of the application process, which will be evaluated for errors and for attention to details. The internships are un-paid, but you will be awarded an editing credit for the job(s) that you work closely on. Interns receive a PDF copy of the “Book Production Guide,” which offers detailed advice on the various parts of the publishing process.
