Editorial Internship

Dundurn is seeking an editorial intern to assist in our busy editorial department. In supporting the editorial team, the intern will have the opportunity to work on books throughout their production — from acquisition to final printer-ready files. 

The ideal candidate is focused and proactive, possesses a sharp editorial eye, and has a wide-ranging appetite for Canadian popular culture, current affairs, history, and fiction (literary, mysteries, and YA). Some experience with proofreading or copy editing is an asset. 

We are an inclusive company striving to represent Canada in its full diversity through our practices and publishing list. To ensure equity of opportunity, we encourage applications from individuals of diverse background. We recognize all diverse experiences, including LGBTQ, people of colour, Indigenous Peoples, people with disabilities, gender diversity, and other minority groups or states of diversity.

The editorial intern’s tasks and responsibilities will include the following:

  • marking-up pdf proofs with corrections
  • checking corrections
  • making corrections using InCopy
  • checking printer proofs
  • proofreading
  • checking indexes and photo credits
  • editing citations
  • fact checking
  • assisting with awards submissions
  • updating our Booksonix database and proofing records


The 12-week internship is full time, 9–5, and a $6000 honorarium will be awarded. Successful applicants will be asked to attend a half-hour interview, followed by a copy-editing test that typically takes 45 minutes to an hour. Our offices are located in downtown Toronto. 

Interested applicants should send their resume and cover letter to Administrative Manager Sara D’Agostino sdagostino [at] dundurn [nospam] com by Monday, November 25, 2019.

This opportunity has been made possible through the support of Ontario Creates.
