INTERNSHIPS An internship at The Rights Factory is an introduction to book publishing from the author’s perspective, through a variety of tasks, mostly editorially-driven. You will be paired with an agent and help them evaluate and assess submissions by potential clients. For existing clients, you will help edit manuscripts and nonfiction book proposals, and research market comparables as we prepare projects for submission. NOTE

  • Internships are currently remote.

  • Internships are a minimum of 6 months, part-time and we do offer an honorarium on completion.

  • Ideal interns will already have confidence in their editorial opinions, and any bookselling/rights-selling/publishing/legal or related business experience is a bonus.


Hal Niedzviecki's THE LOST EXPERT has sold to Cormorant Books.

In THE LOST EXPERT, Chris, an unambitious young waiter, stumbles onto the set of a Hollywood film and is mistaken for the missing lead actor. He is corralled into shooting scenes from the movie The Lost Expert as he disconnects from his real life. Falling deeply into his newfound persona (which turns out to have its own dangers), he must grapple with his role as imposter and whether he can — or even should — extricate himself from reinvention.

"The Lost Expert is a gripping novel of ideas, especially around those of identity and personal reinvention -- and how a seemingly innocent case of mistaken identity can escalate to having life-altering consequences,” said The Rights Factory CEO Sam Hiyate.

Hal Niedzviecki is the Publisher of Broken Pencil and Founder of the Canzine Festival. THE LOST EXPERT is scheduled for publication in Fall 2021.

Author Joan Marie Galat’s middle-grade activism book has sold to Lindsay Brown at Beyond Words/Aladdin, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

This book will provide young readers with an essential human rights background and an overview of issues as well as the tools to help them become informed and effective activists. It will also look at how others tackle local, national and international problems and provide a how-to guide for encouraging change on issues that impact people, animals, and the planet.

"Joan's ability to take adult-seeming subject matter and make it truly accessible and interesting to middle-grade kids is spectacular,” said TRF agent Stacey Kondla. “This is going to be a life-changing book for many children."

It is planned for release in Spring 2023.
