Editor's note: This is the final installment in our Intern Appreciation Week series. Thanks to all our interns for their hard work this semester, and good luck to the seniors who are graduating next Saturday!
Haley Leuthart is a senior at IU majoring in English and minoring in Communication and Culture. She is also working on a LAMP Certificate.
Editorial/Foreign Rights Intern. I help prepare submitted manuscript files (text and art) for transmittal to the manuscript ed. department. I also help enter contract information into the online database and send correspondence to authors.
Are you involved in any other organizations on campus?
Why did you decide to intern with IU Press?
I decided to intern with IU Press because I am extremely interested in the field of book publishing. I had previously interned for the OAH Magazine of History, and I enjoyed working there, so I decided that I would love to pursue another internship at a publishing company.
What are your future career goals/path?
Over the summer I will be attending NYU’s Summer Publishing Institute: a six-week long intensive program about book, magazine, and digital publishing. I’m looking forward to seeing what the publishing industry in New York City is like, and to meeting top professionals in the field. I’m hoping the summer program will lead to a job in the publishing industry.
What are some of your other hobbies?
I like to read, travel, and stay active/play sports.
What is your favorite book?
