Eligibility: The program is open to applicants who self-identify as people of color. Applicants can be students and/or interns but are not required to be. Ideal applicants are readers, writers, and book lovers with a genuine interest in pursuing a career in publishing. Applicants need not live in New York City. Mentorship can be done remotely.
How to Apply: Applicants should submit a one-page essay to RMMProgram@gmail.com explaining why they are interested in becoming an editor at a book publishing company and what holes they see in the marketplace that relate to their personal experiences. Please specify area of interest (i.e. a preference for either children’s books or adult, fiction or nonfiction, and any particular genres of interest). Applicants should also include a resume that reflects any editorial experience they may have (paid or volunteer).
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
