Publishing Internships in Australia
Here are a few examples of roles that our publishing interns have taken on before:
Publicists promote authors’ works to as many potential readers as possible. Interns will have the opportunity to plan and organize book tours, as well as develop marketing strategies to promote an author and/or their work. Publishers work closely with departments such as editorial, sales, and design.
Copy editing is the first step in the editing process, requiring meticulous and detail-oriented individuals, as they are responsible for eliminating grammatical and syntactical inconsistencies. Interns will have the opportunity to work on several literary forms, from online newspapers to magazines and even manuscripts.
Representing an author, literary agents liaise between an author and publishers. Agents are responsible for pitching the author’s work to editors/publishing houses while negotiating contracts and deals. Interns will have the opportunity to manage sales, contracts, and the publication process of their designated clients.
Editorial assistants assess manuscripts and provide feedback to the editorial staff as well as the author. Interns will have the opportunity to edit manuscripts, pitch ideas for new works, and influence design, distribution, and marketing, all to ensure that the publishing process runs smoothly.

“I had a really good experience with my internship and I was lucky enough for that to turn into a full time role quite quickly. Straight away they got me to write stories, go to events and get stuck in from day one which I was quite surprised and really stoked about, of course.“Miriam Harris Auckland University of Technology
