Part-time rights internship
Ampi Margini is on the look-out for smart and curious interns to support us in selling foreign rights for the titles we represent.
This is a virtual position of around 15 hours/week, for a duration of 6 months. Our interns can be based anywhere in the world.
Interns help us, among other things, managing our social media accounts including Facebook and Twitter; read manuscripts; update and prepare our print catalogues and general marketing materials; and explore new markets, potential clients and prospects. They are also involved in organizing book fair meetings and schedules, contracts drafting, royalty chasing and in our regular newsletter
Many of Ampi Margini former interns have gone on to find a job in publishing after having completed their internship.
