We’re hiring!

World Editions is offering an exciting internship opportunity at our Amsterdam office starting early 2019. Working with our team here in Amsterdam, interns will be part of the day-to-day running of a busy international publishing house. As we are a small company, the intern will be able to get involved in all stages of the publishing process.

 

About World Editions

World Editions is an independent English-language publisher with offices in Amsterdam, London, and New York. We are a global team dedicated to publishing foreign literary fiction in English translation.

 

Responsibilities

This internship offers the chance to be involved in all aspects of publishing, with a focus on editorial and general administrative duties. Key responsibilities include producing copy for various purposes and audiences, management of our website and social media accounts, assisting with text editing, and proofreading newly translated manuscripts.

 

Qualifications

A passion for reading and international publishing is a must! We are looking for a native speaker of English, with a good grasp of English grammar and punctuation and excellent attention to detail. Microsoft Office skills (Word, Outlook, Excel) and social-media skills (WordPress, Twitter, Facebook) are required. Familiarity with proofreading and copywriting or production knowledge preferred. Foreign-language skills are a plus, as this would give the right candidate the opportunity to evaluate incoming manuscripts and occasionally translate short pieces of copy.

 

This is an Amsterdam-based opportunity, please contact for more details.
