PLL is looking for a graphic design intern to join our team! Take a look at the requirements below, and if interested, please email hiring@paperlanternlit.com with the necessary information by 2/10

About us: Young, dynamic, successful team with more than a decade of experience in commercial book publishing. We work with debut authors on exciting new teen, middle-grade, and adult projects that we create, plot, love, and nurture all the way from proposal stage to the bookshelf.

Please find more information about us at http://www.paperlanternlit.com and thestudiopll.com .

About you: A creative, self-starting graphic design powerhouse! You should be based in the New York area with the ability to work remotely and on-site in Manhattan/Brooklyn. You are fluent in Illustrator and Photoshop, but have other design tricks under your belt to ‘wow’ us with!

Job Description

  • Conceptualize and implement designs for the following projects: quote and infographics, logos, newsletters, social media blog posts, flyers, invitations, and digital book covers.
  • Work closely with Marketing Manager and Marketing Intern on content for PLL’s social media accounts including Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and WordPress.
  • Provide routine website maintenance.

Job Requirements

  • Must be available up to 20 hours per week (most of this work is done virtually and independently, with only 5 hours per week needed for in-person meetings).
  • A laptop or tablet that allows you to work remotely.
  • Fluent in Adobe Creative Suite with an emphasis on Photoshop.
  • Excellent photography skills, including lighting and filters.
  • Proficient understanding of web platforms, including WordPress and Squarespace.
  • Proficient in multiple areas of design, from sketching to photography, cover and logo design, etc.
  • Ability to manage multiple deadlines while taking the necessary time to complete each one—a rushed job is an incomplete job!
  • Familiarity with books, especially within the young adult genre. (The more of a YA nerd you are, the better!)
  • Ability to multitask on different projects under different imprints.
  • Video editing skills a plus.
  • Previous publishing experience a plus.


This position is unpaid. PLL will reimburse your transportation costs to and from any on-site meetings, and your lunch is always on us! This position is perfect for college Juniors, Seniors, or recent graduates looking for publishing/design experience and excellent references.
