Manager, PR & Communications

The BOTM team is a squad of passionate readers and analytical marketers who uncover and promote the best books by emerging authors, and we are seeking a Manager of PR & Communications to make sure the world knows about our work.  In this job you will build and manage a unique communications program that puts Book of the Month at the center of the cultural conversation around new books.

You will:

  • Obtain effective press coverage of BOTM’s story, brand, mission, features and special events
  • Obtain recurring press coverage for BOTM’s 5 monthly selections
  • Craft an email newsletter program that industry participants actually read, and build distribution list into a powerful platform
  • Amplify our work with celebrity guest judges
  • Take our Book of the Year award to the big time
  • Create and execute monthly BOTM launch parties
  • Evaluate new content partnerships and affiliate relationships
  • Manage other communication channels

We know this is a big challenge, so we would like to put forth the hypothesis that years of experience is less important than grit, competence, attitude, passion, and the ability to “make some noise”.  We are looking for an intellectual and indefatigable doer who can grind away at problems until solutions emerge. If that sounds like you, please apply!

About You

  • Minimum of 3 years experience in public relations and communications
  • Ideal candidate will have PR experience for both eCommerce brands and books 
  • Deep network of professional contacts at various media publications
  • Ability to conceive, articulate and execute a cogent and effective PR strategy
  • Exceptional writing skills and ability to communicate in clear, powerful language
  • Detail-oriented, well-organized, super hard-working
  • A love of reading and contemporary fiction, and enthusiasm for the BOTM community
