WFU Press Internship Application
Wake Forest University Press is the premier publisher of Irish poetry in North America, and our office is located near the Wake Forest campus at 2518 Reynolda Rd. Interns are expected to work in our office 6-8 hours a week during the semester.
We accept internship applications on a rolling basis for the fall and spring semesters of every year. Students may take the internship simply for the learning experience, or, once accepted, you may also register for class credit. All interns (regardless of taking for class credit) are required to intern for two semesters.
Please allow at least 7 business days for a response from the Press. Because of limited physical space, we are only able to accept a few interns each year, but applicants should feel free to apply multiple times.
Internship Areas and Responsibilities
All interns get an overview of the current publishing climate, including such areas as digital publishing, foreign rights, the status of independent and corporate bookstores, copyright issues, sales, marketing, social media, and stages of publishing from proofreading to actual publication.
Responsibilities include general office work, answering the phone, responding to unsolicited manuscripts, helping with mailing of galleys and review copies, fulfilling book orders, etc. Interns also gain hands-on experience with subsidiary rights and copyright issues; customer service and order fulfillment; Irish authors and overseas publishers; proofreading and book production; marketing and promotional outreach, including e-newsletters, social media, writing web content, web updates, and customer/audience development; and organizing readings for WFU Press poets, both on campus and at other venues.
