If you’re a college student who’s obsessed with weird books, fascinated by New York City’s strange subcultures and eager to analyze pop culture, we want you to join our team. We’re currently looking for editorial interns for the duration of the fall semester, from September 2013 through December 2013. The ideal applicant will have a strong academic record; a demonstrated interest in book, magazine and/or web publishing; previous internship experience in publishing; and strong recommendations from both faculty members and previous internships or positions. This is an unpaid position for school credit only. Candidates must be enrolled full-time in college as undergraduates for the Fall 2013 semester and be receiving credit for their internship.

Internship responsibilities include reading submissions, drafting copy for social media channels, pitching ideas, doing extensive research and writing posts for The Airship, generating marketing copy and assisting staff members in the execution of marketing, media and author events.

To apply, please send a resume and cover letter (both as PDFs) detailing your previous experiences in publishing and applicable skills to Kate Gavino at
