The literary internship (at Hawthorne and elsewhere)

We get a lot of requests from local folks hoping to do an internship at Hawthorne Books—unfortunately way more than we can accommodate. Every spring, fall and winter (and sometimes summer) we have two, 10-week, unpaid interns and they help us out immensely. Lately we’ve been getting double and sometimes triple the amount of applicants so we thought we’d publish a roundup of Portland literary internships so we have somewhere to point folks beyond Hawthorne.

Internships are a great way to gain experience and build your resume while helping a business or non-profit out. This list is most likely missing folks so please let us know who we’ve left out…

Thank you so much for you list of publishers! I’m planning on moving to Portland OR and want to do an internship to get to know the area and to get school credit, so this was very helpful. :D Thanks!

I am a senior in high school and have excelled in honors and AP English classes all four years. I have developed strong analytical and writing skills, but would any of these companies choose a high school student over a college graduate for an internship? I doubt it, but I’m still curious.

Thank you for some other wonderful post. Where else may just anybody get that type of info in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am on the search for such info.

I often write books and diaries in my spare time. And I love that job. It is a source of inspiration for me to work every day.
