We host placements frequently to assist young people interested in a career in publishing to experience key publishing tasks from editing to marketing. This is real and valuable experience, and interns will be involved in the production and sale of books from the first stages of reviewing prospective manuscripts, through to editing and illustration, followed by promotion of the physical books (and e-books) via launch events, social media and here on our website.
Your work and contribution will be greatly valued, however we are unable to offer payment for work experience. It is recommended that interns dedicate from six to twenty hours a week to their placement, to get the most out of it. This depends on your circumstances. Students undertaking a placement as part of their studies might wish to commit to between six and ten hours, whereas others may be able to do more. Flexible remote working will be facilitated, and we welcome applicants situated overseas.
If an internship or work place with Scotland Street Press seems an exciting prospect to you, send us your CV and a covering letter:
