INTERNSHIP POSITIONS AVAILABLE!

Once again, we are looking for some readers to join our ranks. Specifically, we are looking for readers of adult fiction. If you are a primarily YA/MG reader, please hold tight… we will be posting about more of those positions quite soon.

The internship is a great way to learn more about an agent’s work and decision-making process. Past interns have been writers, teachers, MFA students, and passionate readers.

You do not need to live in New York—this is a remote internship. We ask for a ten-hours-a-week commitment. Please note that it is unpaid. 


The agency runs a monthly educational chat for all of our interns, led by a different agent/on a different topic each time. (Past and upcoming topics include: How publishers create marketing plans, Do we need literary agents anymore?, Digital and social publishing, Literary scouts: What do they do? What are the entry-level jobs in publishing?we try to make them as useful as we can.) These are optional, and the days/times vary because all the interns have different ‘day job’ schedules.


Adult Romance

TBA is looking for readers that love romance and all its super sexy subgenres, from contemporary to paranormal to historical and suspense—even young and new adult. Tell us which are your favorites as there are several positions open that require specific interests!

    Are we able to apply for both internships if we are interested? I understand that I can probably only do one but I'm interested in both.
