Salky Literary Management offers summer, fall, and spring internships at our office in Manhattan. We are always interested in hearing from young readers, writers, and others interested in publishing who are looking for a hands-on learning experience with an experienced agent at a boutique agency. Interns will work directly with Jesseca, and will gain skills in all aspects of agenting from evaluating manuscripts, to writing pitches, to understanding contracts and royalty statements.

As a partner with We Need Diverse Books (WNDB), interns of diverse backgrounds are eligible to apply for its Internship Grant. For more information, please click here:
