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. 

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

Spring Internship - College/University applicants only

Fall Internship - College/University applicants only 

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.
