Design and Editorial Fellowships

Thank you so much for your interest in Chronicle Books and our 2020 Editorial/Design Fellowship programs.

With much regret, we are suspending these programs because of the impact of COVID-19. We hope to offer our Fellowships again in 2021!

Design Internships

We have temporarily suspended the Design Studio Internship while the threat of COVID-19 is still present and the Shelter-In-Place mandate for San Francisco County is still in place.

We will make the internship available once regular business operations have resumed and the public situation is deemed safe.
