- We do not have an intern program, sorry.

- We could do with a few volunteer moderators for conversation threads and so on at Goodreads, LibraryThing, and any (almost) other site you can think of.
- We really enjoy fan videos.
- We have a full-size platen press in a dusty garage with no electricity. If this excites you and you want to work on it, contact us.
- We are always hoping for chefs, bakers, gardeners(!) and so on.
- We are seriously interested in more translations — especially of Angélica Gorodischer. However, we are monolingual (sorry) which makes the editorial process difficult. If you are a grad student looking for a translation project which may be of interest to us, we recommend Gorodischer’s Trafalgar* and Prodigies**.
* We are excited to report that this line here brought a translation our way and we are proud to announce that in 2013 we published Amalia Gladhart’s translation of Trafalgar. Thank you Amalia and the internets!
** And doubly excited that in 2015 we will publish Sue Burke’s translation of Prodigies.
