    The application process is anonymous. Applicants must submit a one-page essay answering the questions outlined below. No resume is required, and names should not be included in the essay.

    • Why do you want to work in book publishing?
    • What book has made the biggest impact on you and why?
    • What are the last five books you’ve read? (This can be a list or paragraph.)
