Folio Literary Management is a NYC-based mid-sized literary agency. Folio places both fiction and non-fiction with publishers throughout the U.S. and around the world. We represent many first-time authors (some of whom have gone on to hit the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and other bestseller lists). We also represent many well-established authors, and work closely with them to take their careers to new heights.
Come work as an intern at Folio Literary Management! We offer a comprehensive introduction to the world of publishing. An internship at Folio is likely to include:
• evaluating query letters and manuscript submissions;
• editing manuscripts and nonfiction book proposals;
• writing pitch letters;
• communicating with authors, editors, and publicists; and
• learning the ins and outs of publishing contracts.
Requirements/Necessary Skills for Recruitment:
Currently, all Folio internships are unpaid, but we're happy to work with university or graduate students to ensure that you get course credit for the internship when possible.
At the successful conclusion of an internship, we'll also use our extensive network of contacts at major publishing houses and other literary agencies to help you find a full-time job in book publishing. In addition, opportunities for employment at Folio may exist as well.
Please include Resume, cover letter, and a list of the types of authors/books you like to read
