Nestucca Spit Press seeks an intern to support an independent Oregon publisher in its ongoing mission to produce and disseminate unique Oregon stories and books.
Duties involve transcribing interviews, conducting historical research, proofreading and publicity. The internship will last for six months. Benefits include a small stipend at the conclusion of a successful internship, free tuition to any Nestucca Spit Press writing workshop (next one is Sept. 14 in Astoria), and editorial input/comment into any writing the intern wants to share.
The internship is an excellent opportunity for someone interested in learning the regional book publishing business and/or assisting in resurrecting and curating long lost stories and books, or wants to help an Oregon publishing company founded in 2002 that has distributed well over 30,000 books during that span, exclusively through independent bookstores, live events, out of the back of my vehicles, or through thrift stores.
All work can be performed remotely.
If this offer intrigues, message me, and include a statement outlining your interest and availability. I could really use the help. (Please share this post with anyone you might think would be interested in such a gig.)
