Applications are now open for a new paid internship program for emerging editors. The program is designed to increase cultural diversity in the publishing industry.
Three emerging editors will be selected for the six-month program, with the aim of helping them to secure ongoing paid employment in the industry. The interns will spend one day per week in their allocated publishing house and will also be supported by an external mentorship program, led by Radhiah Chowdhury. The participating publishers are Hachette, Giramondo and Pan Macmillan.
The program is one of three initiatives designed to increase cultural diversity in writing and publishing offered by Writing NSW with funding from Create NSW. The other two initiatives are mentoring programs for emerging writers and for emerging curators to collaborate on this year’s Boundless Festival.
More details about the internship program for emerging editors and the application form are on the Writing NSW website.
Hachette Australia, along with the Richell family and in partnership with the Emerging Writers’ Festival, is honoured to announce Simone Jordan as the recipient of the Richell Prize for Emerging Writers for 2021.
