Ellechor Publishing House, LLC is a growing book publishing company poised to take the world of publishing into the new millennium with style.

The right intern will have the opportunity to give valuable input, suggest and lead programs of choice, and overall do what all leaders long to do: leave their mark of excellence. The opportunity for continued employment is also open for the most valuable interns.

All interns should possess office work experience, be detail oriented, and able to work well with people and independently. They must also have their own laptop or computer, reliable Internet connectivity, and be able to function in a virtual office environment with primary team contact being via phone and email. 

The internships are unpaid, except in the case where freelance writing tasks are specifically requested. We require at least 20 hrs of dedicated time per week. Success is measured primarily on the interns’ ability to complete tasks in a timely manner, and ability to take initiative.

Applicants in Metro Atlanta, GA and Metro Portland, OR areas are preferred, but not a requirement. We will assist any interns that would like to receive course credit for their time, so please identify in your cover letter if this will fulfill a school requirement.
