    Avon Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, is one of America’s preeminent romance houses and developed the careers of such bestsellers as Tessa Dare, Eloisa James, Beverly Jenkins, Lisa Kleypas, Sarah MacLean, Julia Quinn, Lynsay Sands and Cat Sebastian. Avon is also home to some of the most important names in contemporary romance and women’s fiction, such as Ilona Andrews, Alyssa Cole, Jeaniene Frost, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Alisha Rai, Jennifer Ryan, Jill Shalvis and Mia Sosa. In 2011, Avon introduced Avon Impulse, the industry leader in digital-first romance, highlighting authors such as Olivia Waite, Nisha Sharma and Marie Tremayne. Avon Books has been publishing award-winning romance and women’s fiction since 1941. It is widely credited with launching the historical romance genre with the publication of Kathleen Woodiwiss’ The Flame in the Flower and remains at the forefront of romance publishing today.

     

    The HarperCollins Summer Internship Program is a paid 10-week program which runs from June 1 through August 7.  All interns work Monday through Thursday, for a total of 28 hours per week.  As a HarperCollins intern, you will learn about the entire publishing process - following one book from beginning to end while hearing from the people who worked on it in our weekly lunch and learn series (lunch is provided!). You will work on a publishing project throughout the summer with your fellow interns and have the opportunity to present your findings to senior staff.  There are plenty of opportunities to network including an icebreaker bowling trip, and the end of the program culminates with a presentation called “How to Get a Job in Publishing” – offering advice on your resume, cover letter, interview, and networking. 

     

    Please submit a separate cover letter for each opportunity you apply to – applications without cover letters will not be considered.

     

    You can submit up to five different cover letters at a time by uploading them to your profile and naming them after the positions.
