Are you interested in interning with FP?

We are currently looking for dynamic, talented, and hardworking spring interns. Our ideal candidate is a self-starter, eager to learn, and passionate about contributing to our mission of creating books that promote freedom of expression and social justice.

We are an independent, nonprofit publishing house based in Manhattan with a small, dedicated staff. We publish exciting authors who share an activist spirit and a belief in choice and equality.

Interns will work closely with mentors in one of the following departments: Publicity, Editorial, Marketing, Executive, and Development; sharing administrative responsibilities.

Responsibilities include:

  • assisting in social media platform management, including tumblr!
  • reviewing unsolicited manuscript submissions
  • proofreading manuscripts and tracking changes
  • mailing out review copies
  • preparing award applications
  • developing online marketing campaigns
  • researching and identifying new donor prospects
  • assisting with fundraising events and book launches
  • general office management and mailing duties

Former FP interns are now at Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Random House, W.W. Norton & Company, Verso, Signs: Journal of Women and Culture, Women Make Movies, On the Issues, the Nation, and the Huffington Post.

The spring 2015 internship begins January 12 and runs until May 15. The internship requires a commitment of three days a week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. We are flexible with students and their schedules. Interns will receive a small daily stipend to offset the cost of transportation within New York City.

Deadline to apply is November 3, 2014.  Find out more information on our website.

"If more girls wanted to be scientists, there would be more female scientists"

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time

spoopy-bat-trash asked: I went and checked out the first two issues of your magazine, and they're really cool! I spread the message because I can't donate right now, but I was wondering if it would ever be possible to buy print copies? I prefer print over digital format (and the digital format is sometimes hard on my eyes).

Hey! Thanks so much for spreading the message. We’d love to move to print one day! It can just be expensive to do that. It can definitely be a part of our growth as we’d like to actually have copies of it as well!
