What are the requirements for interning at Tor?Tor/Forge interns must receive academic credit for their work and must make a commitment of at least two full days or three half days per week. There is no financial compensation for Tor/Forge internships. Students are invited to apply for any semester.
What types of academic internships are available at Tor?
Editorial interns and Editorial interns (Young Adult) gain insight into the process of publishing a book at every stage, from contract request to catalog to finished book. Both types of internships provide interaction with other departments including Production, Marketing, Ad Promo and Publicity. Students learn about acquisitions and the editorial process, rights and territories, contracts, sales, and scheduling. They have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of genre fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, and romance. Young Adult interns work with many of the same genres; Young Adult books are targeted to readers ages 10 and up. Editorial interns may be asked to work with a particular editor or on a specific project during their time at Tor.
Marketing interns will be involved in updating lists of booksellers, mailing galleys and promotional items, and, assisting with preparation for major meetings. Interns may be given the chance to learn more about individual book marketing campaigns. Interns are also required to do a certain amount of filing.
The Production department is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the manufacturing process from copyediting to finished books and offers the opportunity to interact with the art, editorial, publicity, and other departments. Intern responsibilities include trafficking production materials, checking proofs, filing, and special projects as needed. Production interns must have an excellent command of grammar, punctuation, and spelling, and must demonstrate superb communication skills. Fact-checking skills and familiarity with proofreader's marks a definite plus.
Publicity interns will be involved in researching and updating our media contact database, assisting in press kit compilation, and media mailings of both advance releases and review copies. Interns are also required to do a certain amount of filing and office organizational work. Once we feel the intern is ready, they will be given the chance to write press releases and press materials, and pitch the media.

How do I submit writing to Tom Doherty Associates, LLC?How do I submit writing to Tom Doherty Associates, LLC? We have an open submissions policy and consider tens of thousands of projects a year. Every proposal that reaches us is reviewed by at least one member of the editorial staff. We apologize in advance for replying primarily with form letters; unfortunately, there's no other way to handle responses in a timely manner.
Please read this entire section before submitting; following our guidelines will ensure you a fair hearing by our editorial staff.
Please note that these guidelines are intended for writers who do not have agents.
Your submissions packet should include:
Please send only one proposal in each submissions packet. If you have written a series, send a proposal for the first book only. If we like what we see, we'll ask for the rest.
Many people include postcards for us to return when the proposal reaches us. Unfortunately, we don't open submissions until we're ready to read them, so you'll likely get the "I got it" postcard the same day you receive our response to your project.
