We are looking for someone interested in making a career in children's literature. An interest in and the ability to read a wide range of topics in Hindi as well as to write in Hindi is a must. An interest in working for and with children is also a requirement.

You will be placed in the Bal Sahitya team and your work will entail assisting in the various stages of the process of publishing books. You will work closely with the Senior Editor in diverse tasks, as necessary. These will specifically include participating in the manuscript selection process, assisting with making agreements and contracts, and tracking the journey of manuscripts from submission to publication. You will be given opportunities to undertake copy editing which will mean proofreading of material to be published and ensuring they adhere to the style we follow.
