Riverdale Avenue Books has 4 internship positions available.
The office is in Riverdale in the Bronx. Each position comes with a desk and a computer, and the intern will get the most out of it ifs/he comes to the office once a week. This is a new expanding epublishing company, so there's also the possibility that I may hire someone as the company grows, so I would prefer someone who can get to the office. I have hired many of my interns in the past.
I taught journalism and editing at NYU, and have worked with their internship program, as well as two long distance college internships, so I can oversee this internship for college credit, if that works for the intern.
