Internships

Bellevue Literary Press is currently seeking fall and spring interns.

BLP interns work with staff and consultants on a range of tasks, such as: reviewing manuscripts and providing a rationale for recommending them, when appropriate, for publication; assisting the sales and marketing manager in implementing individualized book promotion and auditing distribution; vetting page proofs; supporting the Publisher and Assistant Editor as needed in preparing grant applications, fundraising campaigns, and events; and other work essential to the day-to-day functioning of the press. Because the internship is office based, schedule allowing, the intern will be included in seasonal sales and marketing meetings, informal literary conversations, and discussions about all aspects of the industry. Interns will also be required to provide proof of vaccination to gain access to the BLP office.

Familiarity with and interest in our mission and list is required, and availability of at least eight hours per week, in one full day or over two half days, is requested. BIPOC and members of the LGBTQ+ community are especially encouraged to apply. Please email your resume and cover letter to Laura Hart, Assistant Editor, at laura@blpress.org.
