Internship Program

Since 1989, Aunt Lute’s internship program has offered more than one hundred women the opportunity to learn more about book publishing in a nonprofit context while connecting to women’s, LGBTQ, and multicultural issues and communities. Interns are an integral part of our diverse collective of women. Luters—our affectionate moniker for members of our community—support the Operations, Editing, and Marketing departments. Many interns apply the skills they develop at Aunt Lute to their future careers as writers, educators, artists, and leaders.

We look for interns who have an interest in multicultural women’s literature, have excellent written and oral communication skills, and are flexible, motivated, and able to work independently. (We are currently looking for interns! Details here. )

Friends of Aunt Lute

In the words of one foundation professional:

This non-profit publishing company has produced a wide and multi-cultural array of books that would otherwise never see the light of day. From the collected works of legendary feminist writer Judy Grahn (The Judy Grahn Reader) to the reprint of a classic African-American novel Her, to the phenomenal two volume survey of women’s literature from the 17th through the 20th centuries (The Aunt Lute Anthology of U.S. Women Writers, Volume 1 and Volume 2), they fill a need that no other publisher does… The wide range of authors and communities represented is phenomenal.


We hope to continue publishing for many years to come, and are deeply grateful for everyone who has supported us thus far. Please read on about how to donate if you are interested in supporting Aunt Lute’s work.

How to Donate

As one of the few remaining nonprofit women’s presses, we are very grateful to the individuals who have donated their valuable time and resources to support our mission of publishing the voices of underrepresented women from diverse backgrounds. At a time when many nonprofits, especially those of us focusing on arts/literature, must contend with reduced grant funding, we greatly appreciate our individual supporters.

If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation to Aunt Lute, you may do so online through Network for Good or by sending a check (payable to Aunt Lute Foundation) to PO Box 410687, San Francisco, CA 94141.
