Creative Writing Internships

All Creative Writing and ENGC majors complete an Internship before graduation (for creative writing minors, the internship is optional).  Internships can take many different forms, from working with outside organizations (writing articles for local newspapers; assisting in the editing of literary journals; leading writing workshops for youth programs; or otherwise exploring a writer’s role in the wider community) to participating in a project on campus (creating an anthology of student work or contributing to one of the College’s publications, such as Peal, Echo or Owl & Spade).  

Students attend an organizational meeting in the semester before the internship takes place, and then register for the 2-credit course during the internship semester.  Upon completion of the internship, each student writes a self-reflection essay, compiles a portfolio of work completed, and gives a group presentation on the process.
