Two new remote internship openings!

We are once again looking for two remote (unpaid) interns, people who like to read books by authors like:

Tana French
Eleanor Brown
Jacqueline Sheehan
Jodi Picoult
Gillian Flynn
Lori Roy
Laurie Notaro
Celia Rivenbark
Elin Hilderbrand
Kristin Hannah
Jeannette Walls
Kate Atkinson

This is an eclectic list, so obviously you don't need to like everyone on it! But basically, you should like at least two of the following genres: humor, memoir, upmarket women's fiction and literary suspense.

You do not need to have any kind of publishing experience or even publishing aspirations. We are just looking for people who love books and love to read.  You do not need to live in New York, this is a remote internship.  Please note that it is unpaid.

Please send e-mail to Please put "generalist intern" in the subject line. Tell us why you want the internship, attach a resume if you have one although it's not essential, and list the last ten books you read and your ten favorite books.

Please do not apply if you are primarily a young adult/middle grade reader. It's fine if you do some of that, but we already have our young adult/middle grade specialists in place.

If you have applied in the past you are more than welcome to apply again.

We ask for at least a 10 hour a week time commitment.


  1. Oooh fun. I'm more of a middle grade/young adult kind of gal, but I'll pass the news on to some of my reader friends.

  2. when is the cut off date to send in applications?

    1. It's kind of a rolling process, we assess applications as they come in, and close the application period as soon as we've found two good candidates. So apply as soon as possible if you're interested--you don't need a resume, just a cover letter really.

  3. Is it possible to find out a little about what the job expectations for the interns are?

  4. I'll tweet this straight away! (I love many of these authors, particularly Kristin Hannah and Kate Atkinson.)

  5. When does the internship start and finish?

  6. Will you announce who the selected applicants are?

  7. Are you still taking applications and will you post the selected applicants on the blog?

    1. We are still taking applications but we do not post selected applicants on the blog. Interns are asked to keep their work confidential and be anonymous.

    2. Will you announce when you are no longer taking applications?

  8. I'd like to find out some more information. What does the intern need to provide after the book is read?
    Thank you.
