Who wants to be an Intern?
So, are you or is anybody you know looking to do an internship over the summer? Arbour House (who publish knitonthenet.com and lots of fab vintage craft books like A Stitch in Time) are looking for interns. There’s one in web design and one on the publishing side of things. Work will be done remotely, so you don’t even have to be in the area. Have a read of the press release below and if you’re interested, get in touch with me at Ingrid(at)arbourhousepublishing(dot)com.
Arbour House Publishing is offering two unpaid internships to work independently on fixed term projects this summer. Each 6 week placement will start after 25th July, and end by 26th September (details to be confirmed).
Location is not important because attendance on site is not required. Virtual interviews will take place by phone or skype on the week beginning 19th July.
We are looking for enthusiastic entrants into the web design and publishing sectors and are committed to helping them develop valuable skills for their chosen career.

Requirements for both of the internships are:
