Internships at Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency

We are seeking a diverse group of interns from all over the country for the spring and summer seasons.

Interns are responsible for reading manuscripts and proposals, writing reader’s reports, reading unsolicited manuscripts, and upon request providing editorial feedback on client proposals. 

We encourage readers to occasionally join agent meetings to remotely learn about the business.

The internship is a roughly three-month commitment and includes a monthly stipend. This position has the option to be remote. Please note that for the time being our agency is currently working remotely.

In addition, we also offer an entrepreneurial program where interns will have the chance to scout out potential clients for the agency.

If interested please email with your cover letter, resume, and 1-2 reader’s reports. 

There are four senior agents who make up The Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency. Interns will have a chance to interact with all agents.
