What does it mean to work at Sourcebooks?

We’re a mission driven publishing house made up of people committed to growing talent and thinking differently. We believe books change lives, and by joining our team you are joining a community of book-minded professionals who connect readers with amazing stories.

Based in the Chicago suburbs, we’ve adopted a hybrid working model that allows us to expand our workforce beyond Illinois into Arizona, Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin. We hire top talent at all levels, and then develop those people into some of the best in the publishing business. We think big, aim high, and work hard: this shows up in our numbers time and time again.

If you’re seeking an internship with us, our program will resume in 2023. We’re redeveloping the Sourcebooks internship so it better adapts to the ever-evolving world of publishing. Exciting changes are ahead: check back here for more updates!
