Praise for Interning with Chrysalis
As an intern at Chrysalis Editorial, I was granted the unique opportunity to work hands on with things like manuscript revising, webinar planning, and website updating. Prior to my internship, I was apprehensive about the depth of the writing industry but now I feel both confident and comfortable to work on any project handed my way. The team at Chrysalis is kind, patient, and considerate, not to mention that they are willing to work with you every step of the way to ensure that your time spent with them is valuable and meaningful. - Vanessa Montalbano, Intern, summer 2020
Interning at Chrysalis Editorial was a wonderful introduction into working professionally with books. I mastered managing my time and taking the initiative in projects, such as updating websites and writing social media posts, which were appreciated skills in later internships at literary agencies. The best part of this internship, however, is the meaningful and lasting connection you make with the team. - Mary Simmonds, Intern, summer 2018
