Even though I’m an Editorial Intern, my day here at Seven Stories
Press can include work from any department. On any given day, I might
be creating the index for one of our titles, proofreading our next
Ralph Nader book, or reaching out to reviewers or other media contacts
about a new novel we have coming out. And most often, it’s all of
these varied tasks on the same day. Things don’t get dull at Seven
Stories. As an intern, I’m always learning new things. No matter what
tasks come at me through a day, I always feel like I’m helping in the
process of putting out the important messages that Seven Stories
authors have to offer.
Even the less glamorous office tasks are interesting here. One day,
one of our authors asked us to send a copy of one of his books to a
political prisoner. Often there are extremely strict rules about what
books can get to political prisoners and what cannot, and sometimes they have
to come directly from the publisher to be accepted.

To achieve that goal, we need serious national efforts to create jobs that pay enough for families to meet their basic expenses and to provide the training and work support necessary to ensure that current and former welfare recipients can obtain and keep those jobs."
