    Hello, my name is Mark Plumlee and I am very interested in the book marketing internship, but I have two questions before I apply. How much experience in marketing is required? And is it paid?

    Thanks for your time,

    Mark Plumlee

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you for inquiring about our marketing internship. The internship has been filled for the summer, but we are still taking resumés for future consideration. We are looking for students with an interest in new media and business branding. We don’t expect students will have a great deal of practical experience. The internship is 20 hours per week, and is unpaid.

      You can send your resumé to John Williams, our Marketing Director, via email at

      Thank you again for your query.

      Best regards,

      Sean Jones
      Acquisitions Director
