The Milkweed Fellowship
The Milkweed Fellowship is grounded in our belief that books have the potential to change the way we see the world, and that equity is essential to a vibrant, diverse, and empowered literary ecosystem.
This paid, one- to two-year immersion program is designed to offer the tools, experience, and exposure necessary to pursue a career in book publishing. Intended to provide an alternative route to success in an industry where the prerequisite to an entry level position is typically an unpaid internship, this learning-oriented position seeks to provide entry to those historically underrepresented among workers in book publishing—Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQIA+, and those with disabilities—so they may advance, discover, and champion transformative literature for years to come.
This position is based on-site in our Minneapolis offices and is full-time (non-exempt, 40 hours per week, for 12 to 24 months), beginning in June 2020. We expect to make our final decision on a candidate by the end of April. Compensation includes a salary of $35,000 per year, generous paid time off, and health and dental benefits. Our fellowship application period is open until March 16, 2020. Visit the website for more information.
