  • Roxane Gay Books/Grove Atlantic Fellowship

    We are currently seeking an editorial fellow interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of the inner workings of an independent publishing house and developing a solid foundation for a career in publishing. The fellow will have exposure to the editorial, marketing, publicity, and rights departments of Grove Atlantic, and will directly support Roxane Gay Books, a new imprint at Grove Atlantic, in building an exciting list of fiction and nonfiction.

    This is a one-year fellowship that will allow the fellow to gain experience in publishing with an emphasis on creating access for candidates from backgrounds underrepresented in publishing.

    Duties for the new imprint will include administrative work, reading and evaluating submissions, and maintaining a submission log, author correspondence, and other editorial support. Projects for the Grove departments may include the above as well as writing tip sheets, catalog copy, pitch letters, buzz letters and lists, and other in-house and outward-facing publishing assets; assisting with bookseller outreach and sales reporting; light work with contracts, royalty statements, and databases; other administrative work. It will offer the opportunity to observe weekly departmental meetings in addition to sales launch and other all-staff meetings.

    We are looking for someone who loves reading and writing, has a good editorial eye or is interested in developing one, is independent but also willing to work collaboratively, a good communicator, and organized. You do not need prior experience or an academic degree.

    Fellows will receive a $25,000 stipend, for 24 hours a week of work, paid biweekly. The fellow is also eligible for health and dental benefits and paid time off. Candidates can be based anywhere in the United States.

    Applications will open May 24. Please apply with a resume, cover letter, and list of three titles you loved that were published in the past year, to fellowship@groveatlantic.com through June 22.
