Susie’s Stories Character Design and Bookshop Internship

May 17, 2024

Website Susie's Stories

Susie’s Stories, a bookstore in Rockport, is seeking an intern to redesign a character for a kid’s extreme weather emergency preparedness comic, and also spend a day or two a week assisting with the Susie’s Stories bookshop in Rockport this summer.

Previous interns at the bookshop have created window art and maintained/created content for their social media site. There will be the opportunity to learn more about the publishing industry from a book seller’s perspective, as well as from a self-published comics author.

The intern will determine a work schedule with Susie and Doug once hired. Character design work may be done remotely, but bookshop hours must be in person. The bookstore is located on Bearskin Neck in Rockport, and is accessible by commuter rail.


The Intern receives academic credit for the bookstore assistant part of the internship and will be paid for the character design freelance work.
