For over a century, Booklist has helped more readers find more titles than any other publication. Published by the American Library Association, Booklist delivers approximately 8,000 recommended-only reviews of books, audiobooks, reference sources, and videos each year. Spotlight issues provide coverage of popular genres, topics, and themes such as biography, YA, 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, a blog, webinars, and social media.

For those wishing to explore magazine and web publishing, this unpaid internship offers an excellent overview of the book business and an opportunity to sample the duties of an editorial assistant. From helping with titles submitted for review, to blogging and reviewing, to assisting with production, interns receive a diverse array of educational opportunities that includes mentoring and career advice.

All candidates should possess excellent writing skills and a profound love of literature. Progress toward a B.A. or M.A. in English is preferred; we also welcome applicants pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies in creative writing, journalism, communications, and library science.
