Internship Opportunity

We are currently seeking an intern with a strong interest in learning about the play publishing industry. An appreciation of theater is required, and an enthusiasm for new works is a plus. This is a highly interactive internship that aims to provide actual publishing experience with a concentration in the Publications / Editorial Department and the Customer Service Department.

Duties can include copyediting and formatting manuscripts, assisting with social media postings, and working on a variety of company projects and administrative tasks. We’re looking for energetic, self-motivated and responsible individuals with excellent written and verbal communication skills, exceptional attention to detail, and an ability to multi-task.

Requirements: Touch-typing proficiency (at least 60 words per minute); proficiency with standard word processing, email, and web browsing software. Preferred: InDesign experience/interest.

A stipend is provided for both full-time and part-time internships ($15/day), and the experience is eligible for course credit at most schools. Minimum length of internship is 3 months, with a start date on or before September 12.

Send application via email to hr@playscripts.com, and include the following:

1) Cover letter detailing your interest in Playscripts, Inc.
2) Resume of your artistic and administrative experience.
3) Brief literary analysis of a play you’ve read or seen, focusing on the script, not the production (~200 words).
4) Letter of recommendation [optional]

Please submit applications by August 31st.

Although email is strongly preferred, hard-copy correspondence may be sent to our office address:
