This week, we welcome a new group of interns to HarperCollins!
Such a great way to learn about the book publishing business… Always happy to hear about an internship alum starting a job in the industry when they graduate.
I’ve had a lot of friends, past classmates, internet users, etc ask me how to break into publishing and internships, in my humble opinion, are the way to go!
There are publishing programs available over the summer at various universities that I have heard great things about, but they can be very expensive. Internships give you hands-on experience and you don’t have to pay them anything. If you’re lucky, they’ll even pay you! I was lucky enough to intern at W. W. Norton and I got a nice little bit of money for interning there.
So if you’re curious on how on earth to get yourself into publishing, snag yourself an internship at one of the big houses, an indie house, a literary agency, whatever you can.
I made relationships at my Norton internship that got me an internship at a literary agency, where I eventually ended up working for a while. I’m still friends with a lot of my Norton intern pals and bosses.
But whatever you do, just remember to keep trying.
I have nothing but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop loving them. They leave me and I love them more.Maurice Sendak

Another round for the ladies, please.
I’ve always wanted to say that!
brandonfrias: BEHOLD THE MANUL!!!
Pallas’s cat (Otocolobus manul), also called the manul, is a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montane steppe of Central Asia. The species is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline, and hunting, and has therefore been classified as Near Threatened by IUCN since 2002.
Pallas’s cat was named after the German naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776 under the binomial Felis manul.
I cannot stop looking at this cat photo.
