Further information about the internship

The intern role can either be undertaken one day a week for 3 months, or one day a week for 6 weeks, and is designed to assist our sales, marketing and publicity department.

An intern in this role will not only gain a sound understanding of the sales cycle, the processes involved in getting books into bookstores and key marketing strategies, but also gain significant experience in dealing and negotiating with the media and other aspects of publicity including book tours, events and festivals.

This is a broad role that will also give insights into the editorial process and the timeline of book production. It also allows contact with the editorial department to discuss production/timelines and gain information for sales promotion.

For me, this internship was advantageous for my publishing journey not only as an attractive addition to my CV, but also as a genuine learning experience—I learnt countless new skills and insights in marketing and publicity in publishing. ”
