McSweeney’s Internships.


We are now accepting applications for remote interns! Rolling acceptance, to start as soon as availability allows.

You’ll be helping us out with our next few books and quarterlies, specifically our forthcoming Audio Issue of the McSweeney’s Quarterly. For that, interns will primarily focus on transcription, proofreading, test-driving pieces, and helping with our accessible companion website for the issue. We would love to have you join us on this special project.

You must receive college credit to qualify for this internship. Please do not apply unless you can provide proof of college credit upon acceptance.

Who We Are:
McSweeney’s is an independent publisher in San Francisco committed to discovering outstanding new writing from all over the world and presenting it in ways that celebrate its worth and extend its reach. As a small press, we rely on the help of our volunteers and interns to pursue ambitious literary projects­­—projects that take risks, that support ideas beyond the mainstream marketplace, and that nurture emerging work.

Interns must be at least in the third or fourth year of their undergraduate degree. The role requires a commitment of 15-20 hours per week, for around four months. We’re flexible about when those hours take place.

How To Apply:
Email your resume and an explanation of why you’d like to work with McSweeney’s to interns-sf@mcsweeneys.net. Please include your areas of interest in a potential internship or volunteer-ship (copy-editing, marketing, reading submissions, etc.), your favorite McSweeney’s publication, and any other relevant experience.
