Simon & Schuster Seeks Passionate Senior Publicist for Atria Imprint

Simon & Schuster is looking for a senior publicist to take the lead on executing inspired publicity campaigns for fiction and non-fiction titles under its Atria imprint. If you’re a fan of The Secret, House Rules and other books that “entertain, enlighten, educate, and inform,” this may just be the perfect job for you.

The ideal candidate will be doing plenty of pitching, working to land national and local media coverage, including print, television, online and radio. You should be comfortable writing your own press materials, and planning all the logistics of multi-city book tours and appearances. Pretty standard, really.

Three to five years of PR experience is a must, but top-notch written and verbal communication skills are just as important. You should have an enviable contact database, and be able to multi-task without breaking a sweat. A love of Atria’s roster couldn’t hurt either. Think you have what it takes? Apply here.
