writing process: How Do You Get a Job as a Book Publisher?

I was trolling media bistro, looking for a little full-time income to supplement my freelancing, when I stumbled across this awesome job.

Associate Publisher for Cleis Press in San Francisco

(You may have to be a member of media bistro to view this, but it’s free and worth if you like that sort of thing.)

Really, this is my dream job. It looks so fun and creative and varied. It’s a job where my best skills would be utilized. Now, I don’t yet have enough trade publishing experience to be an ideal candidate, which leads me to wonder: How does one go about becoming the ideal candidate for this job? What is the yellow brick road to a career in independent book publishing? If you know, please share.

  1. Internships and starting in a related field where you do have experience and moving up the ladder!

  2. Internships are great if you’re just out of college and/or have a trust fun. Unfortunately, I am past that stage in my life and am not an heiress.
