Careers

Internships:

Peachtree Publishers’ Internship Program offers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes learning experience in the children’s book publishing business. Interns will both shadow and work alongside publishing professionals in either the editorial or publicity & marketing department.

If you wish to apply for both internship programs, please complete the online application only once in addition to submitting both sets of requested application materials.

Graduate students and recent college graduates are welcome to apply. Interns are selected based on interest, experience, and academic coursework.
