SABR is launching a new digital books program. As we move into the frontier of e-books and digital distribution, our Publications Director, Cecilia Tan, is looking for Boston-area interns to help grow the program. (She works out of a home office in Cambridge, Massachusetts.) The ideal candidate should be a current college student or recent graduate who knows baseball and is interested in exploring a career in publishing, editing or journalism/writing. Good writing skills and knowledge of computers are musts.
Activities in this internship will include proofreading, copyediting, fact-checking, basic layout and design, e-book conversion and other parts of the editorial and production process.
To apply, send the following by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as a Word .doc attachment:
- a cover letter introducing yourself
- your resume
- a short writing sample up to 5 pages (class paper, blog entry, article, etc.)
- your predictions for who will win the 2012 World Series (next year’s World Series) including a short explanation of your pick
Deadline for applications: October 25. The internship runs 12 weeks, either the winter term (Nov/Dec/Jan) or spring (Feb/Mar/Apr) and can be adjusted to fit a semester schedule.
Some part-time paying work will be available for top candidates who complete the internship.
