McIntosh & Otis Internship

McIntosh & Otis Logo

Even though I write middle grade and young adult stories, I’ve got a few ideas for adult fiction books in the works. So, I love every age category of reading. So when I hear news about categories I’m not currently writing, I still want to share with all my readers.

For all you lovers of adult fiction or non-fiction, you’ll be excited to learn that an agent at McIntosh & Otis is seeking an intern. Applicants should have a strong interest in book publishing and be savvy readers and strong writers who have office experience. Intern will be responsible for reading submissions and writing evaluations of adult fiction and non-fiction manuscripts. In addition, the intern will assist the existing support staff of the department, handle mailings, filing, and other day to day tasks. The internship will also include administrative tasks such as scanning and copying, but our goal is to create an environment where students will learn firsthand about an agency’s role in book publishing. Please note that this internship is unpaid, though we are more than willing to work with interns in order for them to receive college credit. We would like an intern to work 12-18 hours per week and to commit to a 4 month term, but we can be extremely flexible with your schedule. Current undergraduates strongly preferred.

Send cover letter and resume to aappel@mcintoshandotis.com  to apply to this awesome opportunity.

As always, good luck!
