AN INTERN WITH AN EYE ON PUBLISHING
At Black Spot Books, cultivating talent doesn't just begin and end with our in-house authors, but we strive to make an active, positive impact on the continuing development of everyone that contributes to our small press. With this commitment to talent development, we are excited to share that beginning Fall 2019 we have officially launched a new internship program that is designed to provide small business management and leadership experience to students pursuing business education, as well as to provide opportunities for budding young writers and artists to get behind the scenes of the daily life of a small press author and earn valuable industry connections and experiences. Who knows, maybe you'll even see one of our intern's books on a future bookshelf near you!
This year we are welcoming Danny Buell as the first ever Black Spot Books intern!
At Black Spot Books, Danny will work alongside publisher Lindy Ryan as a publishing assistant, where he will be actively involved in the day-to-day duties of a small press, including working hands-on in support roles with editors, designers, and authors. He'll also be lending a hand in Black Spot's social media, including our soon-t0-be launched YouTube channel and more.
