Internships: Ink & Paper Group

Ink & Paper Group Spring/Summer 2008 Internship Opportunities

Ink & Paper Group, LLC, has the following internships available for spring/summer term. In general, these internships are unpaid but negotiable in duration and hours, in accordance with academic or personal requirements. (And we aren’t nearly as stuffy as that sounded...)


Design interns are given specific design tasks, which may include book projects, marketing materials, Web design, teaser trailers for books, or other projects as needed. Design interns must be familiar with a variety of software programs, including the Adobe Creative Suite (knowledge of InDesign is a must). The type of work as well as the intern’s schedule and skill level will help dictate the breadth and depth of work. Interns will be credited for their involvement in published works.


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.

Assistant Publisher - Dame Rocket Press, Bowler Hat Comics, Three Muses Press

Gain experience in all areas of publishing (editing, design, marketing) as they relate to the specific imprints. Work directly with the publishers, with emphasis on project management, development of the imprint, and preparation of future projects.

*Bowler Hat is also interested in exploring long-term internships attached directly to specific titles, overseeing all aspects of the books development from acquisition to publication to post-pub marketing.


Business intern will assist our CEO and COO with business organization as well as operational and finance tasks. The primary needs are capital procurement, record keeping, and integration into the broader local business community.


Editorial interns begin with acquisitions work (reader’s reviews, acceptance & rejection letters, tipsheets, proposals, etc.) and in-house editing needs for documents and Web content. Interns will then move on to a primary editorial project, usually book-length. Interns work directly with our editor in chief and, as needed, with individual editors or publishers for specific imprints. The type of work (developmental, copyediting, proofreading, etc.) as well as the intern’s schedule and skill level will help dictate the breadth and depth of work. Interns will be credited as Associate Editor in published works.

Submissions: November Third Club (Deadline March 15)

FYI: They're hungry for poetry...

The November Third Club an online literary journal seeking to "up the ante" of literary political writing, is seeking poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction that resonates with a political message and rises above the mere rhetoric and rant. The emphasis will be on political literature, will be unabashedly left-wing in nature, and will be looking at literature written from a liberal, green, anarchist or libertarian perspective. Biases up front.

The November Third Club is edited by Victor D. Infante, editor in chief; Lenore Weiss, fiction editor; Richard Beban & Ray McNiece, poetry editors; Carlye Archibeque & Richard Modiano, nonfiction editors; and Sam Hamill & Deborah Grabien, contributing editors.

Some of the ideas we are interested in exploring from a literary perspective include reclaiming church and state, electoral fraud and reform, race and identity, censorship, individual liberty and of course, "The War on Terror," but we're open to new ideas, particularly innovative ones. Don't just rehash tired old knee-jerk anti-Bush propaganda and give us your commentary on Associated Press news stories. We want something that pushes the envelope of political writing. We're open to styles and genre, we just want the writing to be good and the message to resonate.

Guidelines for submissions:

Previously published material is fine as long as the original publisher is acknowledged and the author retains the copyright. Unless directly solicited by the editors, previously published material may be given less of a priority than unpublished submissions. (Although really, if we love it, we'll probably publish it.) All copyright reverts to the author upon publication. Please acknowledge The November Third Club if material it published first is reprinted elsewhere.
Unsolicited submissions will only be accepted via e-mail. Our e-mail address is nov3rdsubmissions@yahoo.com.
Please note whether the submission is poetry, fiction or creative nonfiction in the subject line of the e-mail. Unmarked submissions may be deleted unread.
Please submit no more than three to five poems, or ten pages of prose.
Please put your name and e-mail address in the body of the e-mail. Please also include a short bio, no more than 200 words, in the body of the e-mail.
The submissions themselves can be either in the body of the e-mail or in an attached Word file. No other formats will be considered.
The deadline for the eighth quarterly issue is March 15th.
We cannot pay anyone for their work as of this time.
We think it should go without saying, but please, please, please proofread your work before sending it to us. Our staff is still small, and has better things to do than to fix your typos.

2008 Judges
Fiction : Steve Almond
Nonfiction : Abigail Thomas
Poetry : Kim Addonizio

Prizes in Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry

First Prize in each category: $1,500, publication in Quarterly West (subject to editorial guidelines), a featured reading at the conference, full Conference tuition — morning workshops and afternoon sessions, a manuscript consultation during the Conference with one of the visiting editors or agents, and free housing.

Honorable Mention in each category: tuition for free afternoon session package (value can be applied towards the full Conference tuition), and a manuscript consultation during the conference with one of the visiting editors or agents.

Writers who have not yet published a book-length volume of original work with a national press in the genre in which they submit a manuscript may submit work for the fellowship competition.

Only unpublished work may be submitted. Work will be considered published if it has appeared in any print journal or literary magazine or has appeared in an electronic magazine or journal. Posting work on personal websites is not considered publishing. Please do not submit work from chapbooks or work published by a vanity press. Self-published work (such as a collection of stories, poems, essays, or novel that you print for limited distribution) is acceptable.

Current or former students who have studied with judges in an accredited degree-granting program or institution are not eligible for the competition.

Previous winners are not eligible in the genre in which they have won.

Judging is done blind. Names are removed from submissions before they are screened so the screeners and judges have no idea of the author and judge on the quality of the manuscript alone. Screening panels are made up of board members and writers from the Salt Lake City writing community. Judges are faculty members invited by the board. They are not board members nor are they affiliated with the board.

Entries must be postmarked or e-mailed no later than March 1, 2008. Results will be announced May 1, 2008. Manuscripts will not be returned.

Class: Professional Editing (Feb. 16)

Professional Editing
Saturday, February 16, 1 5 p.m.
Cost: $100

The demand for editors is quickly rising. Unfortunately, in the United States, no formal certification process is required for editors. Those wanting to be editors need to distinguish themselves from those who have simply hung out shingles because they feel they write well or they have a degree in English. This class breaks down the various professional editing roles and discusses how the editing process should work from simple one-on-one freelance gigs directly with an author, to complex interactions with large publishing houses. The class also includes information on project management including estimating time, staying within deadlines, dealing with fatigue, and working with challenging clients.

Instructor Ali McCart is the owner and senior editor of Indigo Editing. She is also the Web director of WiPP (Women in Portland Publishing). Ali is an experienced editor and business leader in both the traditional publishing company structure and the freelance editing industry.
