Future House Publishing editing interns will get hands-on experience with all the parts of the publishing industry, including acquisitions, editing, layout, marketing, and distribution. We are looking for interns who love publishing and feel passionate about the kinds of books that we produce. A good applicant will be organized and have excellent communication skills.
Internships run three times a year, for four month periods (January–April, May–August, and September–December). Internship requirements include fifteen hours of remote work each week and twice-weekly meetings during business hours with FHP employees. Our internships can be completed completely remotely. Communication is handled through phone calls, video chats, and online messaging. No in-person meetings are required.
Interns can come from any educational level. No prior experience is necessary, but applicants must pass a copy editing test. Priority will be given to applicants with editing, acquisitions, layout, or InDesign experience.
If needed for assignments, InDesign and other programs will be provided. Personal access to Microsoft Word is required. Interns must have a computer that can run these programs.
Applicants for the Future House Publishing internship program will be asked to list a specific internship on the application, but, if they do not meet the requirements for their first choice, they will be considered for all of our available internship positions during the hiring process unless they indicate otherwise during their interview. Please only apply once.
To apply, fill out the application below. No resume is required at this time.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Applicants will be contacted two months prior to the start of the upcoming internship period (November, March, and July) to begin the hiring process.
Our editing internship is an unpaid learning experience. If you are already an expert on editing and would like to apply to be a freelance editor, check out this job page instead.
