Agencies do have internships for non-college aged interns. We have two interns and they are both out of college and wonderful. And I didn’t particularly care what their major was. BUT we wanted our interns in the office. When your remote, it can be harder to convince an agent you’re the right person, which is something you just want to keep in mind. If there aren’t any agencies near you (you should research that), perhaps research a few agents who aren’t in NY or who work from home and see if they’d be interested in a remote intern. I do know there are some agents who will tweet when they’re looking for an intern so make sure you’re on twitter and following agents.
I scan bookjobs and other places for (remote) literary internships every day. I'm mid 20s and way out of college, but I am really looking to get involved in publishing, and I know internships are the way to start. Most of these mention college. Do agencies consider non-college interns? Especially non-English or related major college graduates? Thank you.— Anonymous
