Gain valuable publishing experience by becoming an intern for Booklist Publications in Chicago.
For over a century, Booklist has helped more readers find more titles than any other publication. Published by the American Library Association, Booklist delivers over 8,000 recommended-only reviews of books, audiobooks, reference sources, videos, and DVDs each year. Spotlight issues provide coverage of popular genres, topics, and themes such as biography, young adult, multicultural literature, graphic novels, romance, sports, and much more. Reviews are supplemented by interviews, essays, and columns. Booklist‘s electronic presence, anchored by Booklist Online, includes e-newsletters, blogs, webinars, and social media.
Whether you are pursuing an MLS, an MFA, or simply want a taste of magazine and web publishing, this unpaid internship offers an excellent opportunity to sample the wide-ranging work of an editorial assistant. You may also have the opportunity to write and publish a review for Booklist and to discuss career options with a Booklist editor.
Interns should be available at least 12 hours per week. Internships will last approximately four months. Please send cover letter and resume to: Keir Graff, editor of Booklist Online, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
