Red Hen Press is committed to publishing works of literary excellence, supporting diversity, and promoting literacy in our local schools. We seek a community of readers and writers who are actively engaged in the essential human practice known as literature.
The Marketing and Media Internship will take place through Red Hen Press, an independent nonprofit literary publisher located in Pasadena. During the internship, the intern will work with the Marketing Director and Media Manager to promote and publicize Red Hen's publications and programs during our 25th anniversary year by working on book pitches, sales kit mailings, vendor cultivation, event promotion and organization, and more. This internship is intended for applicants seeking to gain hands-on experience in marketing and publicity for arts programs.
All applicants should be proficient in Microsoft Word and Excel (familiarity with Access is a plus). An upbeat and polite personality is a must, as are strong verbal and communication skills, which will factor in prominently when representing Red Hen Press over the phone, through email, and via traditional meetings. The intern must be able to maintain deadlines, multitask, work individually and with initiative, and communicate with their supervisors in order to operate effectively within the Red Hen office. Previous experience with marketing and/or media will help an individual's application, but in general the willingness to learn will also be taken into consideration. An interest in and/or knowledge of literature is essential.
