Editorial Intern, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

What I Learned From My Summer Internship, Part 3

Good news on the summer internship front: It has now been extended into a fall internship. Hooray!

Beginning today, for the next 10 weeks (or until I find a full-time position), I will remain the Children’s Editorial Intern, now working directly with Kate O’Sullivan, Senior Editor at Houghton Mifflin, as well as with other HMH children’s editors, including Margaret Raymo, Ann Rider, Erica Zappy, and editorial assistant Christine Krones. I will continue to read manuscripts and write reader reports, make my way through slush piles, write decline letters, and in general learn more about the Houghton Mifflin way of children’s publishing.

Subsequent postings on my experiences will be entitled “What I Learned From My Fall Internship”. Also, I hope to continue posting (albeit sporadically) the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Book of the Day. Lastly, check out Afterfonts…, my blog dealing with things typographical- and word-related, where I sometimes post the new vocabulary words I’ve learned from all my reading. Occasionally, I also get the urge to make words up, like the word hippoltergeist, a word that came about when I somehow got the words hyperpolyglot and poltergeist mashed together in my head. A fellow intern and I decided hippoltergeist should be defined in this way:

hippoltergeist, n.

-the spirit of a deceased hippopotamus that wreaks havoc on family homes, mainly in the children’s bedrooms, though not in a malicious way

Love O'Hare for its yoga room; love Raleigh for its bookstore. Anyone read Marilyn Johnson? I'm hoping to read more non-fiction in 2017!
