Full Time

Rizzoli is offering an amazing opportunity for a full-time Publicist with 2+ years of experience working on illustrated interior design, fashion, architecture, art, lifestyle, and cuisine books.

The position is full-time, salaried, with benefits, and is available immediately.

You have great rapport with your media contacts, you know how to tailor a press list to the project, you write well, are highly organized, relentless with follow-up, and warmly diplomatic with first-time or seasoned authors. You also have experience managing author tours, remain calm under pressure, and are not daunted by the prospect of juggling a number of titles at the same time

You will be responsible for between approximately 20-25 titles per season. This will entail drafting press releases, pitch letters, and creating print, online, and broadcast media lists for each book. You will help organize tours, talks, book-signings, and other author events as appropriate, as well as tracking, logging, and reporting on your progress on each book in twice-monthly department meetings and brainstorming sessions. You will also be responsible for entering all confirmed and received press coverage, as well as capturing and saving on-line media coverage for your projects.

General department responsibilities will include assisting on weekly event reports, bi-weekly and monthly publicity status reports, helping plan Author Event budgets on your titles for each season, and you will be expected to attend all NYC events for your authors. It is possible that you will also be tapped to attend BEA and Gift Shows.

You will work hard on great projects, as part of a collegial team. The atmosphere and work are creative, but you will be an ideal fit if your work style is highly organized and very orderly. It is assumed that you are fluent in basic computer programs like MS Word, Excel, and Outlook Office. Ideally, you have experience with Publicity Assistant and Cision as well.
