Internships

Publicity Intern

A Beacon Press internship is a wonderful learning opportunity, and may prove to be invaluable should you pursue a career in book publishing. Because Beacon is a small press, our interns have the opportunity to observe the functions of other departments as well as their own, to work in a friendly and supportive environment, and to make a valued contribution to a distinguished press that has a long tradition of publishing progressive, timely and thought-provoking books.

Duties may include: assisting with book mailings, database maintenance, attending meetings, researching media leads, tracking media placements, creating press materials, writing occasional blog posts, and completing media outreach. Our interns gain hands-on publicity experience and are expected to fully engage with the books and work assigned to them.

Requirements: Candidates should have excellent writing, research, and critical thinking skills; be creative, detail-oriented, and work well independently. Computer skills, a desire to learn, and a dedication to our social justice mission are a must.

Pay/Hours: Beacon Press summer internships are unpaid. The length of the internship is 14-16 weeks, with a 12-16 hour-per-week commitment and a flexible schedule. We are also happy to work with your school to help you earn college credits, when applicable.

To apply: Applicants should e-mail a cover letter and resume to publicity manager Caitlin Meyer at cmeyer@beacon.org. No phone calls, please.

Beacon Press is committed to building a diverse workforce. People with disabilities, people of color, and those who identify as L/G/B/T/Q are strongly encouraged to apply.
