Internships

Are you looking for a fun, creative way to earn course credit for college? Are you a recent graduate looking for industry experience? 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: Isabella.Ligenza@writersworkout.net.

Interview process: WW uses a text-only, virtual interview process through Slack. This live chat helps us determine your ability to express yourself clearly in writing. WW does not use any audio or video interaction for any purpose. 

If invited to interview, we'll send you a link to your private window 15-20 minutes before our scheduled time. The service we use does not require downloads or an account—simply enter your name and your school to join as a guest.

Founded in 2014 with just 44 members, The Writer's Workout is now global with members in more than twenty countries across six continents. We strive to provide a motivating atmosphere that fosters self-growth and development through encouraging language and education.

We want to help you be a better writer.

2021 UPDATE: The Writer's Workout will offer only one internship session (summer) in 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. 

The Writer's Workout cannot support high school applicants at this time.
