Check out how one of our awesome fall interns is getting into the Halloween spirit!

"Happy Halloween! I'm Gabby, one of the fall interns here at S&S. I currently work with managing editorial/production in the children's department. I'm also finishing up my last year at Saint Peter's University where I'm studying English and Journalism.
It's hard not to be in the Halloween spirit when you're working with books such as Aaron Reynolds' CREEPY PAIR OF UNDERWEAR!"

"Take a minute to walk around the office, and you'll discover that everyone at S&S is a nerd for something. We all flaunt it, so it brightens up my day when a colleague points at one of my office trinkets and says, "I'm also a fan of that! Let's chat!" I have certainly made friends in the company this way, some don't even work in my department or imprint!" -Luqman Hamaki, Managing Editorial Assistant | Atria Books

Say hi to Luq if you see him around! He's super friendly and his trinkets are awesome! #publishing #lovewhatyoudo #simonandschuster #employeelife #managingeditorial #atriabooks

"Opening a dictionary always yields a solid first step on the road of reflection. As summer glimmers, as August begins, as I finish my internship at @touchstonebooks here at Simon and Schuster, I found myself a definition that encapsulated my melancholy and my joy: “Something fundamental and quintessential.” That’s a touchstone. That’s also the summation of all I take away after eight weeks of working alongside the most tireless and passionate and kind and intelligent people I have yet to meet in publishing. To them, hopefully, I say, “’Till next time!” (Or at least until I need to nab a few more unwanted books from the free shelves because, honestly, how could you not? They’re so good!)" -Abhinav, Touchstone Books, Swarthmore College '18

Our HR department joined forces with the CBS HR & Corporate departments yesterday for a day of service and giving back to the community! We had a great time taking part in various local volunteer projects together. We enjoyed a field day with elementary school children from the Children's Aid Society, gave children a loving and comfortable night’s sleep by reading to them with the Pajama Program, and prepped and served meals for Harlem locals with Food Bank NYC. #SSVolunteers #cbscareers #sscareers #cbscareers #volunteerday #givingback #childrensaidsociety #pajamaprogram #foodbanknyc #community #volunteers CBS

Meet our awesome summer intern, Elizabeth, who is a WNDB (We Need Diverse Books) grant recipient and intern for the Children's Editorial department. Say hi to Elizabeth if you see her around!

Hello, lovely readers! I'm Elizabeth, the children's editorial intern at S&S.

I work for the S&S Books for Young Readers (BFYR) imprint which covers everything from picture books to YA. I'm also going to be a senior at Barnard College where I major in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. :)

What I love most about S&S is its dedication to publishing books by diverse authors! Right now, I'm loving Jenny Han's TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and S.K. Ali's SAINTS AND MISFITS. Both feature awesome female protagonists of color #womancrushwednesday. P.S. TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE is about to become a movie! So get reading before you see your favorite characters on the silver screen!

Meet Gabriel, another one of our incredible summer interns! Gabriel shares what he enjoys the most about being an editorial intern for Scribner.

“For as long as I’ve known publishing existed, I’ve admired Scribner and their dedication to quality and impactful books--so working here this summer has been a real cornucopia of riches. I’ve especially enjoyed editorial board meetings, where I get a glimpse into the editorial character of the imprint and learn to better understand and appreciate the broad ecosystem of publishing.” - Gabriel, Scribner Editorial, Wesleyan University '18

One of our incredible summer interns, Natalie, is giving us an inside scoop of what working in the marketing department at Atria is like!

Hello, fellow bookworms! I'm Natalie, one of the summer interns here at S&S 🤓

I'm currently working in the marketing department at @atriabooks and I have one year left at Cornell University!

My morning today starts off with the weekly company-wide Marketing meeting. But first, coffee...

One of the best things about Atria is the variety of books we publish across our imprints. Zoom in, you'll definitely see what I mean!
