Life at Fitzhenry & Whiteside
Collaborating for the growth of Canadian publishing
The team at Fitzhenry & Whiteside is dedicated to Canadian literature for every generation. Our team of editors, salespeople, and support staff work out of our facility in Markham, Ontario.
"In my experience, Fitzhenry & Whiteside is a great place for a first internship because the atmosphere truly fosters learning; even the employees are continuously teaching and learning from each other, and this provides an extremely supportive environment for interns. Working as part of a smaller staff encourages overlap of responsibilities and increased communication, which is ideal when you are eager to gain as much publishing wisdom as humanly possible in a short span of time. My favourite aspect of the internship -aside from the people, who are wonderful- was everyone's willingness to talk and answer questions about their jobs. Their willingness to share stories of their diverse experiences and knowledge gave me insights into the industry I might not have gained elsewhere."

"My internship at Fitzhenry & Whiteside was a great experience where I got to learn about both the print and digital production process. I had the opportunity to create ebooks and complete research, which gave me skills in new programs that I had never used before. The people at Fitzhenry & Whiteside made the internship more than just informative, they made it fun."

"I came to Fitzhenry & Whiteside having never interned at a publisher before, and my internship quickly helped me build up the skills I need in publishing. The program gave me the structure and support to learn how to perform editorial and publicity tasks in a publishing environment, and the people there welcomed me into a great environment. At Fitzhenry & Whiteside, I was never lost and never bored. The breadth of tasks and support offered made for an amazing internship."
