All internships are unpaid.

PR/Publicity/Marketing interns assist our publicists by updating databases, proofreading copy, sending out advance books, and maintaining press files. All interns spend a certain amount of time filing, sending out mass mailings, photocopying and helping out in the comics and graphic novel library.

Interns at Fantagraphics receive the opportunity to learn about the comics-publishing process; they also gain knowledge of various aspects comics industry (the differences between the comic-shop market and the bookstore market, distribution, creator’s rights, etc.). Please be advised that all comics are created off-site: interns do not write or draw comics during internship hours, although if someone in the office has the spare time, they're often happy to critique independent projects completed outside of the internship. In fact, no one at the office writes, draws, pencils, inks or letters comics during business hours. Interns' hours are scheduled during the Monday-Friday 10:00-6:00 time period. A minimum of 10 hours a week is required.

Be advised that the office contains a large variety of comics material, so you will come across sexually explicit content. In light of this, we strongly encourage only people over 18 to apply.
