Looking for Generalist Interns!

We are once again looking for remote (unpaid) interns! We are ideally seeking people who enjoy books by authors like:

– Erin Morgenstern
– Tana French
– Eleanor Brown
– Jacqueline Sheehan
– Jodi Picoult
– Gillian Flynn
– Lori Roy
– Laurie Notaro
– Celia Rivenbark
– Elin Hilderbrand
– Kristin Hannah
– Jeannette Walls
– Kate Atkinson

This is an eclectic list, so obviously you don’t need to like everyone on it! But basically, you should like at least two of the following genres: humor, memoir, upmarket women’s fiction and literary suspense.

You do not need to have any kind of publishing experience or even publishing aspirations. We are just looking for people who love books and love to read. You do not need to live in New York, this is a remote internship. Please note that it is unpaid.

To apply, please email submissions@thebentagency.com and put “generalist intern” in the subject line. Tell us why you want the internship, attach a resume if you have one (although it’s not essential), and list the last 10 books you read and your 10 favorite books.

Please do not apply if you are primarily a young adult/middle grade reader. It’s fine if you do some of that, but if that is your focus, please see the posting for YA/MG interns here.

If you have applied in the past you are more than welcome to apply again.

We ask for at least a 10-hour-a-week time commitment.
