Internships

Are you looking for a fun, creative way to earn course credit for college? Are you a future teacher interested in fostering a creative writing environment for children (who also may or may not need course credit for graduation)? The Writer's Workout provides several internships throughout the year that will give you a taste of what it's like to work with creative writers in the publishing industry as well as working for a volunteer organization.

These are for-credit opportunities available to college students and recent graduates. Questions may be directed to Bella Ligenza: Isabella.Ligenza@writersworkout.net.

The Writer's Workout offers both a Spring and a Fall internship session each year:
