Sundress Publications

An internship with Sundress Publications is an invaluable experience for anyone looking to gain experience in the literary publishing field. As part of this six-month internship, I was provided the opportunity to proofread manuscripts, review books in both fiction and nonfiction, and track submissions for contests, among other important tasks. Writing press releases, book reviews and notes on a forthcoming manuscript will work to sharpen a writer’s voice and expertise in the field. Finally, this internship is extremely important in connecting authors with potential publishers and presses for their own work and allowing authors a firsthand glimpse at the type of work that is in demand at this current moment. Overall, interning with Sundress Publications in a positive, engaging experience.
