Drawn & Quarterly Launching Paid Publishing Fellowship

The only downside is you'll be paid in loonies and toonies.

Drawn & Quarterly have announced a publishing fellowship for the summer of 2018 that will teach all corners of the comic book business from editorial, to production, to marketing, and retail. With such an in depth lesson on how comics work, Dan Didio and Akira Yoshida should probably take D&Q up on this opportunity.

The fellowship will take place in Drawn & Quarterly's Montreal office, Monday through Thursday, 32 hours a week, 9:30-5:30. The application deadline is March 1.

The full details and requirements are below.

Drawn & Quarterly is pleased to announce a publishing fellowship that will focus on all facets of the book business: editorial; production and design; marketing and sales; and retail. The paid position will be in the company's Mile-Ex office in Montreal, Monday through Thursday, 32 hours a week, 9:30-5:30. The fellowship will be offered biannually: a winter fellow (mid-January through mid-June) with an application deadline of October 1; and a summer fellow (mid-July through mid-November) with an application deadline of March 1. The fellow will interact with all departments and be invited to sit in on meetings.

D+Q is an independent 28-year old international graphic novel publisher that has outstanding production and editorial values; is a firm believer in creators' rights and sound business practices; and publishes on average 25 books a year by both new cartoonists and authors whom the company has been publishing for three decades. The company is also a Montreal book retailer whose mission is to provide a dedicated sales and events platform for quality independent comics, literary, and poetry presses from across North America.

We regret that we are unable to provide support for moving expenses. We invite people to submit applications for summer 2018 and encourage people of all backgrounds to apply, including people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, women, and those with diverse life experiences.

REQUIREMENTS:
Applicants must read and be fans of contemporary comics and literature of their own volition and understand who D+Q is, as well as its peers, and their place within both the international comics community as well as the North American publishing landscape.

Applicants must be Canadian citizens; permanent residents; or have an existing post-grad work permit—we are unable to consider anyone who does not fall into these three categories as we are unable to sponsor visas.

Candidates will be recent graduates (within a year) who have earned undergraduate or graduate degrees or certificates in, but not limited to: graphic design; publishing; literature; marketing; or media. Applicants without degrees or higher education but who have work experience of four years or less in book retailing and/or micro- and self-publishing will be happily considered.

Applicants must be professional, punctual, and detail-oriented and possess a team-oriented business acumen. Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, French, Japanese, or Korean is an asset.

Please send a cover letter and CV to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name in the subject and "D+Q Fellowship" and which season. IE "Marlys Mullen, D+Q Fellow Summer 2018."
