We try to place students with the opportunities that they have indicated an interest in and have the skillset and experience to be successful. However, it is important to understand that internship project placement can change at any time before the internship begins, on the first day, or throughout the program. If we know that a project will be changing in advance of your start date, we will contact you to make sure you are still interested in participating. Please understand that in the busy world of publishing books, we have to adapt to changing priorities and that may impact the project you are assigned to.

We love when interns join our team and bring new and exciting ideas and their talents to projects. If you are interested in receiving a letter of recommendation from your supervisor kindly put your request in an email to them after your internship concludes giving them at least three weeks prior to when you need it. However, an internship with our team is not an automatic guarantee for a letter of recommendation. A letter of recommendation must be earned through hard and outstanding work. A letter of recommendation must come from a supervisor(s) with who you worked closely during your time here. Supervisors can decline any request for a letter of recommendation.
