Biblioasis is Looking for a Full-Time Intern!
Have you ever wanted to learn more about publishing but assumed you would have to go to Toronto or New York or London to do so? Have you turned down unpaid internships because you can’t afford to work for free? Do you want the opportunity to learn about publishing at one of the best independent houses in the country?
Biblioasis, through the assistance of the OBPO (Ontario Book Publishers Organization) and the OMDC (Ontario Media Development Corporation), is offering a 12 week full-time paid publishing internship as an introduction to independent publishing in Canada. The successful candidate will learn about key aspects of the publishing process, from production and bibliodata management to publicity and marketing, including copy-writing, author tour management, social media and review protocols.
No past experience in publishing or the book industry is required. The successful candidate will have a love for books and reading, the ability to work both independently and on a team, and a keen mind open to new tasks and experiences.
The position pays a flat stipend of $6,000 over a 12-week period. Full-time hours in the Biblioasis offices in Windsor will be required from February 20th to May 11th.
Applicants from diverse backgrounds – including but not limited to ancestry, culture, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, language, physical and intellectual ability, race, religion (creed), sex, sexual orientation and socio-economic status – are encouraged to apply.
