Apply Now Apply Later Job ID 715248BR Location New York, New York, United States Business Marvel Entertainment Date posted Oct. 29, 2019

Job Summary:

Interns in Marvel’s editorial department have the opportunity to act as an apprentice on tasks directly related to comic book production. Like most office interns, they perform some clerical duties, such as filing and shredding sensitive documents, but they also format scripts, collect reference and perform research for editors to send to artists and writers, check lettering drafts for corrections, and write recap pages. Those that show interest and diligence are also given opportunities to review colors, review line art for balloon placement, and share their thoughts about scripts.

Responsibilities:

Editorial interns should be ready to scan papers to pdfs, transcribe notes, or read stories prior to publication to ensure there are no errors in clarity. The intern is an additional set of eyes for the book to pass under before going to the printer. Time management and task prioritization are also essential since editorial interns work with multiple editors.

Editorial interns work directly with the editorial staff on all of Marvel’s print comics. We are looking for strong writers with an eye for details—editorial interns write recap and solicitation text, help lay out ad lineups and act as another set of eyes all the way from the script through to the completed book. Interns also assist with research into story and art continuity for our writers and artists. Successful interns are self-motivated, able to manage their time effectively and have a love of Marvel comics.

Basic Qualifications:

Students of all years, majors, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. There are no creative qualifications. However, experience in narrative-based (published or performed) media is preferred, and editorial experience is desirable. Familiarity with the Microsoft Office suite is a must.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Resume must outline other internships, degrees earned, work experience, related clubs and organizations, current major course of study, expected graduation date and extracurricular activities.
  • Cover letter must include a personal introduction, and days/times available during internship period.
  • Preferred Junior or Senior-level standing
