Littleberry Press is not currently hiring any full-time positions.
Littleberry Press offers three-month internships during the summer, spring, and fall. These are paid positions, and interns will gain valuable experience in the day-to-day functions of the independent publishing industry, as well as in fundraising and nonprofit management. Interns will receive complimentary copies of Littleberry Press titles. We can coordinate schedules with the academic school year and offer college credit.
The duties will vary according to the needs of the press, but they may include areas of editorial, clerical, shipping, sales, publicity, or grant writing. The intern is expected to be reliable, punctual, show attention to detail, and work creatively and collaboratively with all staff members. We ask that interns commit to working a minimum of 12 hours each week, but we are flexible with scheduling.
With the onset of the global coronavirus pandemic, we have committed to working with a distributed staff indefinitely. Interns will be required to have a computer/laptop and a reliable access to the Internet.
