This new decade opens on a deeply turbulent time in history; with the 2020 US presidential election looming nearer, we are faced with ballooning debt, insecure job, healthcare, education, and housing prospects, and the imminent threat of climate catastrophe. In the wake of Donald Trump's 2016 election, a new wave of leftist organizing has swept across the country, fighting to reverse these trends. Rejecting the neoliberal status quo of austerity and inequality, this new movment has propelled visionaries like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar into Congress.

The New Press relies heavily on the help of its paid interns, treating them in many respects the way assistants are treated at other publishing houses and nonprofits. This means far greater exposure to interesting work than is normally afforded interns; it also calls for a degree of responsibility that is significantly greater than at most internships. Our New York office is large and efficient enough to offer a wide spectrum of experience, but small and casual enough for you to form intimate and lasting bonds with the staff.
