Marketing interns will help create strategies for existing titles and incoming acquisitions, responsibilities will include development of internal and external documents such as marketing plans, implementation plans, booksheets, author bios, etc. In addition, marketing interns will gain experience and confidence that will result in successful and rewarding communications with authors, bookstores, media, and fellow industry professionals.
