Sarabande's internship program now offers six-month internships during our spring and fall seasons (January-June and July-December). We accept up to three interns each season. Interns who complete our program gain the skills, references, and experience to launch their career in publishing. 

Each intern will receive comprehensive exposure to Editorial, Marketing, Development, and Programming.

Responsibilities may include: 

  • Following production process from manuscript acceptance to finished book.

  • Assisting with marketing and outreach initiatives.

  • Assisting in planning local events and readings.

  • Updating our website and blog and create monthly e-newsletter.

  • Proofreading manuscripts and publicity materials.

Interns work from our Louisville office 11am-4pm, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Interns will also be expected to work up to two local events per month (book festivals, conferences, fundraising events) which may take place on weekends or evenings. Please only apply if you have reliable transportation. This internship is unpaid, but we highly encourage students to apply for college credit and/or funding. We will do our best to work with your university's for-credit requirements.  

We accept internship applications year-round through our online submission manager and fill positions on a rolling basis.
