Positions at Lucinda Literary are currently closed. While we have filled our summer internship program, we will be accepting applications from high-energy, self-motivated, creative, do-it-all interns in December.

Lucinda Literary will be accepting and reviewing applications in December for the Spring 2021 Editorial Internship. This opportunity will last from February to July, where interns will gain experience in tasks such as:

  • scouting writers for representation, reading and responding to queries
  • assisting in manuscript and book proposal editing and submissions
  • researching event opportunities for authors
  • weekly social media posting for company and client Facebook pages/Twitter feeds
  • writing and/or editing blog posts for the company website and newsletters

This is primarily an editorial, research, and administrative position ideal for gifted writers and communicators who want to gain experience in the representation side of publishing. Interns will benefit from a diversity of experience transferable to any full-time position in publishing, marketing/PR, or digital.


College seniors or graduates with excellent research, writing, and organizational skills. Previous publishing experience is preferred, but not required. The internship requires a commitment of 3 days in office per week at our midtown Manhattan location.
