Teens

We’re always looking for talented teens to join our Teen Advisory Board, so if you love books, check out the information below and get in touch. And even if you don’t have the time right now, you can stay in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

If you are thinking about a career in publishing, or just simply love to read, you should definitely apply to the Zest Books Teen Advisory Board. Plus, this experience will look great on a college application.

We’re looking for teens (14-17) who:
* love to read
* are up on pop culture
* are reliable
* are good at giving feedback

You don’t need to be a great writer, but you do need to be a great—and relatively quick—reader.

If you want to see if we’re currently accepting applications, email editorial@zestbooks.net with “Teen Advisory Board” in the subject line, and express your interest in applying.
We will give you the guidelines on how to submit your application.

The members of the Zest Books Teen Advisory Board are an integral part of our company. They work on all aspects of the publishing process, from concepting new books to fact-checking and editing manuscripts to advising us on cover designs. They also just generally keep things real in the office. Our teen advisors are from different Bay Area high schools and were selected based on their interests and accomplishments in writing, reading, editing, and teen culture.
