The Darley Anderson Children’s Book Agency: Internship

Our internship is a three-month commitment, for two days a week. Working from our busy office in Parsons Green, you’ll be introduced to both primary agenting and international rights sales. You’ll support us across our lists of authors and illustrators, and there will be opportunities to learn more about international rights fairs, attend author events and meet with editors and scouts as appropriate.

This would be a great fit for someone with office experience and a passion for children’s books who would like to find out more about publishing and agenting. No publishing experience is necessary.

Our next internship will run from May 2024 until the end of July 2024. Please check back in April 2024 for information about applications.
