Internship Opportunities

 

 

The Writers' League of Texas is a statewide nonprofit -- the largest literay arts organization in Texas -- committed to supporting writers, both established and just starting out, at all stages of their writing careers. Among the WLT's signature programs are the annual Agents & Editors Conference, Project WISE (Writers in Schools for Enrichment), Texas Writes (a rural library program), and the Summer Writing Retreat, along with ongoing classes, free and open events around the state, contests, and more. 

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 A&E Conference or the summer retreat)
;
• A firsthand look at a nonprofit organization and how it works, including development, fundraising, member services, marketing;
• An understanding of the publishing world and the many aspects of the literary arts community here in Texas, and more.

To apply for an internship, please send an electronic version of a resume and cover letter to becka@writersleague.org or hard copy documents to Becka Oliver, Executive Director / Writers' League of Texas / 611 S. Congress Ave., Suite 200 A-3 / Austin, Texas 78704.

At this time, there are no open internship opportunities. We will be accepting interest for Fall 2019 internship positions starting August 2019 (and this page will be updated with specifics - including job responsibilties and compensation - in Summer 2019).
