The WLT provides hands-on experience for student interns who are pursuing a degree in English, communications, creative writing, marketing, public relations, journalism, event planning, or related fields. Interns typically work for a four-month (semester-long) period, approximately 4 to 10 hours a week, depending on need and availability. All internships come with a stipend for the semester and can be structured to qualify for course credit as needed.
What interns will gain:
• Experience in event planning (if they overlap with planning dates for the annual A&E Conference, the Summer Writing Retreat, or other special events);
• A firsthand look at a nonprofit organization and how it works, including planning programs, fundraising, member services, marketing & promotion;
• An understanding of the larger publishing industry as well as an introduction to the literary community in Texas and beyond.
To apply for an internship for Summer 2021, please send an electronic version of a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
