Find 2023 Writing Internships
If you believe the pen is mightier than the sword, a writing internship can bridge the gap between your college essay and your New Yorker article. Writing internships are available across industries and organizations, from magazines and film studios to nonprofits and tech companies. Writing is a rich and varied field, so it’s up to you to hone your area of expertise and build an impressive portfolio. No matter what, you’ll spend your internship developing written materials for your target audience, with a focus on clarity, grammar, voice, and consistency. To get a great internship in this competitive field, you’ll need a strong portfolio, top-notch communication skills, and basic knowledge of MS Office (and Adobe Creative Cloud if you’re feeling ambitious!).
After your internship, you can pursue a writing career in marketing, communications, publishing, screenwriting, creative writing, or academia. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, writers and authors make a median annual salary of $62,170, while technical writers make $71,850. While the number of writing jobs is expected to remain flat over the next decade, technical writing is expected to grow by 8%, which is faster than average.

Science Writing Internship
Former science writing intern Sarah Hansen
SERC's science writing internship program is for anyone who loves learning about science and crafting stories to explain it! As a SERC science writing intern, you'll interact with Smithsonian scientists, interns and educators. Your work will appear on SERC's Shorelines blog and in SERC's On The Edge print newsletter. You'll also gain social media experience, creating posts for SERC's Facebook ( @Smithsonian.SERC ), Twitter ( @SmithsonianEnv ) and Instagram ( @smithsonianenvironment ) accounts.
We will be offering one science writing internship in 2023, for 11 weeks in the summer. The internship is open to undergraduate students, master's students and recent graduates up to one year after graduation. Interns can work remotely, on-site or in a hybrid style—we've made it work all three ways!

Summer Science Writing Internship (Virtual or In-Person)
Mentor: Kristen Goodhue (science writer) Stipend: $625/week Duration: 11 weeks Start Date: Flexible, sometime in June Deadline to apply: Feb. 15, 2023
The summer science writing intern will gain experience with all facets of SERC communication. Main priorities include interviewing research scientists and interns, reading new scientific studies and writing blog pieces about the latest SERC projects and discoveries. Other responsibilities include creating content for social media, helping produce the On The Edge print newsletter and updating the SERC website.
Desired Qualifications: Strong scientific background (some natural science coursework; not required to be a science major) and a flair for writing about science for a nonscientific audience.
To apply: Apply online through the Smithsonian Online Academic Appointments system (SOLAA). The 11-week summer science writing internship requires one letter of reference. For the science writing internship, the application must also include one to three writing samples explaining science in a public-friendly way. Put these in the essay/personal statement portion of the application, after your essay. Writing samples can include school papers, student newspaper articles or pieces you've written for a personal blog—anything that tells a story about science in a nontechnical, engaging way! Multimedia pieces are also welcome, as long as at least one of the samples is written. Multimedia samples should be included as links in the Personal Statement, or as attachments in an email to Kristen Goodhue. Total length of all writing samples should be no more than 10 double-spaced pages (not including your personal essay). See you Science Writing Internship FAQs tab for more information and tips for writing samples.
Pro tip for applicants: Don't just talk about your past experience. Show us how this internship would give you something new! Smithsonian internships are meant to be learning experiences, especially for students who have had fewer opportunities outside of schoolwork. Let your application reviewers know how this experience would benefit you beyond another line on a resume. Tips for applying on SOLAA (because we know it's confusing):
1. Register at the Smithsonian Online Academic Appointments system (SOLAA). 2. Once you have set up an account, click the yellow Start Your Application button. 3. Under Program Category, Choose Internship. Under Office/Museum/Research Center drop-down menu, select Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Click the blue Search button. 4. Smithsonian Environmental Research Center Internship Program will appear under the search results. Choose the green Apply Now button. 5. After completing the first few pages of the application (personal and academic info), you'll reach a section called "Program Choices." You can choose up to 3 labs/programs to apply for at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. 6. In the Personal Statement/Essay portion of the application, write your statement and then copy your writing samples underneath it. At least one writing sample must be written. If you have any multimedia samples you wish to include, either copy links to them or email them as attachments to Kristen Goodhue ( [email protected] )
The Smithsonian Institution is an equal opportunity employer, committed to a policy of non-discrimination on the basis of race/ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, martial/parental/caregiver status, and disability. The community at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center recognizes the value of diversity in promoting innovative science and creative solutions, and we strongly encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. We recognize that each applicant for this role will bring unique skills, knowledge, experiences, and background to this position. As such, while candidates must meet the minimum qualifications related to education and student/alum eligibility for Smithsonian internships, we will be looking for candidates who possess many, but not necessarily all, of the skills and experiences listed above.
Can I work remotely for the science writing internship? Yes. The science writing intern can be on-site, remote, or a combination of the two. We make that decision after we select the intern, based on the intern’s needs and preferences. We’ve made it work all three ways.
What should I highlight in my personal statement? Tell us why you’re interested in science writing, and what you hope to learn from the internship. If you’re also applying for an internship with one of SERC’s research labs, education or citizen science programs, it’s fine to mention your interest in those fields as well. We know how important it is to cultivate multiple options! Just make sure to work your interest in science writing somewhere in your personal statement as well.
Another important tip to make your statement stand out: Don’t just play up past experiences. We don’t expect our interns to have stellar resumes yet! Since Smithsonian internships are meant to be learning experiences for students who have had fewer opportunities, tell us what experiences you hope to gain that you haven’t had already.
Where on the application do I submit my writing samples? In the Personal Statement/Essay section. After writing your personal statement, copy and paste your writing samples directly beneath. Make sure to note where your personal statement ends and your writing samples begin.
What kinds of writing samples are you looking for? Anything that describes science in a way that’s engaging, accessible and not overly technical. Unpublished school papers and articles for a college/university newspaper are some of the most typical examples. While you can submit multimedia if you like, at least one sample needs to be a standard written piece. Writing samples don’t have to be about environmental science. However, if your article deals with a non-physical science (like psychology, sociology or anthropology), make sure to highlight any natural science background elsewhere in your application. Not sure if you’re clip is “science-y” enough? Use this test: Does your article take something complex, and break it down in a clear, engaging way for general readers?
Note: If multiple people contributed to a piece you’re submitting, please highlight or otherwise note the portions that reflect your writing. The only type of writing sample we don’t encourage are Q&As. They’re a great way to highlight interesting voices, but they don’t tell us much about how YOU write.
Do my writing samples have to be published? Definitely not. Papers assigned for class, unpublished “mock” block pieces, or even random musings you wrote down in a journal can all count as writing samples.
What counts as a “multimedia sample”? How do I submit a multimedia piece? Videos, audio files, infographics, illustrations, or interactive data visualizations all count as multimedia samples. Some intern applicants have even submitted comics. The general rule of thumb for “multimedia” is that there be more visual, audio or interactive components versus text. Since the online SOLAA system doesn’t allow uploading of multimedia pieces, the best way to submit them is to upload them to a shared folder, like Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, or Dropbox. Then include a link to your multimedia samples in the personal statement section, along with your other writing samples.
Do I have to submit a multimedia sample to be a strong applicant? Absolutely not! Plenty of interns have gotten the position with only traditional writing samples. The quality of your writing and your ability to break down a complex topic really are what count the most. That’s the reason we require at least one regular written sample, and we don’t require multimedia.
How many hours per week should I expect to work for this internship? SERC internships are full-time, so you can expect to work a full 40-hour workweek, Monday through Friday. If you’re working remotely, hours can be based on your time zone (so West Coast interns would work from 8am-4:30pm or 9am-5:30pm Pacific Time, not Eastern Time).
I live outside the U.S. Am I still eligible for this internship? Unfortunately, we've had to put a pause on hiring international interns at SERC for now, due to legal restrictions for interns working remotely from foreign countries, as well as backlogs in processing for on-site international interns. We hope to be able to resume hiring international students soon! I’m a Ph.D. candidate. Am I still eligible for this internship? It depends. The Smithsonian caps eligibility for internships at one year after completing an undergraduate or master’s degree. If you already completed a master’s degree over a year ago, then no. If you did NOT complete a master’s degree before starting your Ph.D., we consider the first two years of a Ph.D. equivalent to a master’s degree. In that case, if you’re in your third year or earlier of your Ph.D., you would still be eligible. Why does the Smithsonian cap eligibility at one year after a master’s? The Smithsonian views internships as learning experiences for students who haven’t had as many opportunities to gain real-world experience outside school. For that reason, we try to keep them open to students at earlier stages of their professional development. Whom should I request to write recommendation letters? Any mentor figure outside of your family who can comment on your motivation and approach toward work. College professors or former supervisors (for paid or unpaid/volunteer positions) are both good examples. Don’t feel pressured to have someone in a certain field, like ecology or journalism, write your recommendation. It’s most important to have someone who knows you as a person and can comment on the intangibles: your work ethic, your drive, your ability to work with others and your reliability.
What if my recommendation writers don’t meet the Feb. 15 deadline? SERC generally allows a 2-week grace period for recommendation letters to come in, since we know this part of the process is partly beyond the applicant’s control. It’s always best to give your recommenders plenty of notice and encourage them to submit their letters by the deadline. Many times the email link sent to referees goes into spam folder and is missed, so please remind your referees to check those folders as well. What if one of my recommendation writers is having trouble submitting their letter in SOLAA? Have your recommender email their letter directly to Dan Gustafson ( [email protected] ), noting whose application the letter goes with. We will be able to upload their letter to your application in SOLAA.
It’s almost midnight on Feb. 15, and the SOLAA system is down! How do I submit my application? First, don’t panic. The SOLAA system sometimes has down periods on the last night of the application window, since it processes applications for the entire Smithsonian. Try again every 30 minutes or so until it lets you in. If it’s after midnight EST before you can submit your application, don’t worry. We generally allow a few hours’ grace period on the morning of Feb. 16 because we know this can happen. In the meantime, fix yourself a cup of hot tea, coffee, cocoa or whatever helps you destress.
Jobs, Internships & Grants
The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship
Deadline: April 15, 2023. Second years can apply. The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship at UChicago is a two-year fellowship program that supports, mentors, and funds students who are interested in academia. The program provides fellows with faculty mentoring, financial support to conduct a research project, a supportive network of peers and professionals, and the opportunity to participate in activities aimed at deepening their understanding and commitment to professional academic work. Fellows receive a $4,500 stipend during the summer of their junior and senior years, quarterly stipends of $1,333 during the academic year, a scholar’s development fund of up to $800 annually, up to $1,300 to prepare for graduate school preparation, as well as up to $7,500 for research expenses related to doctoral studies once in graduate school. Learn more here .
Journalist, Author Haley Cohen Gilliland, Research Intern
Deadline: March 12, 2023. I am a writer and the director of the Yale Journalism Initiative , where I have the privilege of helping Yale students launch their journalism careers. I am currently working on a book about the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, a group of Argentine grandmothers who banded together and risked their lives to reclaim the grandchildren stolen from them during their country’s darkest era. The Abuelas’ story has captivated me since I first heard them tell it years ago—in 2012, to be precise, when I began working as The Economist’s correspondent in Argentina — and I am thrilled to be partnering with the wonderful team at Avid Reader Press/Simon & Schuster to publish it. I am looking for an enterprising researcher to help compile a detailed memo on Jorge Rafael Videla, the Argentine dictator who presided over the bloodiest period in his country’s history. Putting together such a memo will require reading and synthesizing books, newspaper articles, historical archives, and government cables—most of which will be in Spanish. I am interested not only in Videla’s actions, but also the motivations behind them. A successful memo will include information about where Videla was on specific dates, detailed descriptions of how others—U.S. government officials, for example—viewed him, and colorful anecdotes that will allow readers to better understand his psyche. I am particularly interested in his interactions—both direct and indirect—with the Abuelas, whose persistence landed him back in jail for the crime of baby theft after he had been pardoned for his other crimes. Learn more and apply here .
The Black Midwest Initiative
Deadline: March 31, 2023. The Black Midwest Initiative (BMI) at the University of Illinois Chicago is pleased to invite applications to its inaugural Summer Institute.

Each person selected to participate in the Summer Institute will also work to develop a project, individually or in collaboration with one or more other Institute participants, that will be shown or exhibited as part of the Third Biennial Black Midwest Symposium, which will be held at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio in October 2024. Ultimately, the intention of the Summer Institute is to cultivate space for early-career scholars, artists, and organizers to develop innovative models of collective knowledge acquisition and creative capacity building that will speak to the varied experiences and needs of Black people and communities across the Midwest.

10 Best Writing Internship Programs For College Students in 2022
October 31, 2022 by
John my friend graduated from a prestigious institution in Dallas with a 4.7GPA in English/English Literature. At first, he was so excited and ensures that no day passes without him sharing his success story with anyone who cares to listen.
This is what Happened!
After a year, John was downcasted because he had always believed that with his GPA he can work in any company he wants. In fact, top companies will be at his beck and call. So, when it didn’t work out, he was devastated.
This is what John failed to understand: a high GPA doesn’t fetch a job faster, rather experience does.
Honestly, GPA is just a result of classroom performance. Classroom knowledge is only part of the equation in forging a successful career, and even with your high GPA, your first job will be without basic experience.
And employers being aware of this, look out for people with strong skills and experience. Some go the extra mile to offer training that can help bring new hires up to speed.
So, that is why it’s expedient that before you throw yourself out into the “real” world or settle into a career, it’s a good idea to take a step back and really see if you enjoy it. That’s where an internship comes into play.
Internships won’t only give you work experience, they would also help grow your skills and set you up for your career life.
On this note, we have made content on what Internships entails and the 10 best writing Internship Programs For College Students in 2022.
The table of content below gives an overview of all we have wrapped in this article.
What is internship.
An internship is a technical learning opportunity that provides meaningful, realistic work related to a student’s area of study or career interest.
The internship offers a student the chance to pursue professions and develop and learn new skills.
It allows the company the ability to add fresh ideas and energy to the workplace, grow expertise and eventually create a pipeline for future full-time employees.
Qualities of Internship
For any program to be called internship, it must possess any of the following features:
- Be a part-time or full-time work schedule that includes no more than 25% clerical or administrative duties.
- Give a clear job/project description for the work experience.
- Orients the student to the organization, its culture, and proposed work assignment(s).
- Assist students in developing and achieving learning goals.
- Offers regular feedback to the student intern.

Why Should I go for College Internships?
There are countless reasons it’s important that college students go for internship programs. Whether it’s paid or unpaid, full or part-time, remote or virtual, they all have a plus they add to a student’s life.
Provides hands-on work Training
The easiest way to understand is by doing it. The internship offers an opportunity not only to adapt classroom experience to the real world but also to develop professional skills.
A lot of jobs are acquired by contacts. Internships offer networking tools and opportunities to meet individuals who will act as mentors.
A chance to “test the driving” of a job
Ideally, an internship would offer a glimpse of a specific work and will help a student determine if that’s the best career direction for them. If not, there is also always plenty of time to make improvements.
Excellent Restart Boost.
A great internship helps any resume, particularly if it provides a student with realistic experience in their profession. It also serves as proof to employers that a graduate is serious about their chosen profession.
College Credit/Additional Money
Another reason for doing internships is that many colleges have begun to give credits for doing internships.
They made it obligatory for students studying with them to complete at least one or two internships as part of their academic program. Often, if you can secure a paying internship for yourself, it means some spare pocket money.
Support the Community
Some students take internships with non-profit organisations and other social organizations that offer valuable services to the surrounding community or society as a whole.
The work of interns helps these organisations to conserve vital financial capital.
What are the Red flags to Look out for when going for College Internships?
Here are the red flags to look out for and avoid when going for internship programs:
Don’t let the internship be a euphemism for “grunt work.” Although it’s okay to waste a little time filing or answering the phone, menial work should be restricted.
Wave Job Details
If the job title is so ambiguous that it may be about some line of employment, make that straightforward. They encourage employers to change their work duties to accommodate what they need at the time, which does not serve the potential career interests of a student.
There’s no Simple Mentorship
Since employers know that an intern’s stay is brief, they should not bother spending time and money to train and educate an intern properly. This might relate to a loss of mentors.

The Benefits & Importance of Internships in College
Oct 13, 2021
No matter who you are or what you’re interested in, it’s difficult to think about going to college without thinking about what comes after. Your time in higher education is an important period for you to grow, meet new people and experience life from a different perspective, but ultimately, it’s about preparing you for your career path and your life after school is done.
As you get ready to enter college, you should get used to hearing a word that’s going to start coming up a lot: internships. Internships are becoming more and more important as a way to complement your education and secure your future career. They give you a valuable glimpse into what it’s like to work for a living, lend insights into how your chosen field works and what it takes to succeed, and they can show a potential employer you are serious about wanting to be a valuable, successful employee.
So, what is an internship in college ? Why are they such a big deal? Read on to find the answers.
Depending on your individual experience, an unpaid internship may be the first time in your life you find yourself working just for the sake of learning and doing a good job. While there is such a thing as a paid internship, and often they are done for academic credit, an internship program isn’t about money. The importance of internship experience comes from the skills you build and the improvements you make to your resume.
Once you have your degree, it’s going to take more than a diploma and a winning smile to convince employers to hire you. Internships are your way to show your commitment to professionalism, self-improvement, and excellence. They are one of the most important factors in making yourself appealing in the job market.
An article in Top Universites puts it this way: “Globalization means the world’s economy and business landscape is evolving at a rapid pace, and as a result, businesses and employers are in desperate need of those who have the knowledge, skills, and proven capabilities of working in such settings.”
Even at entry-level positions, every prospective employer prefers to hire someone with industry experience who they can rely on and who doesn’t require extensive training. Internships show an employer that you made the most of your education and spent your free time outside of class on experiential learning.
But what is it, exactly, that you get from an internship that is so worthwhile?
Internships grant you exposure to the inner workings of your chosen industry. They let you behind the scenes to get a taste for the specific knowledge and everyday practices that every job requires. You get the benefit of seeing trained professionals complete tasks you might otherwise have only read about, and you’ll get a chance to try tasks out yourself—the extent to which you do will depend on your field.
But you can’t be expected to be a polished, fully competent reporter, banker, graphic designer, pharmacist, occupational therapist, etc. after an internship position. You simply won’t get enough high-level practical experience for that, especially if you’re a virtual intern. What you will do is learn how to be a professional.
Margaret Stacy-Duffy , an assistant director of career development at North Central College, points to the generalized skills developed in an internship environment. They are what the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) calls the eight career readiness competencies:
- Career- & self-development
- Critical thinking
- Equity & inclusion
These competencies make up, broadly, what you need to have to succeed in any professional setting, and whether you’re onsite or doing a virtual internship, you should pick up these skills. Being a college student around full-time employees will help you appreciate and absorb how to carry yourself, be accountable to co-workers, and make valuable contributions in any workplace situation.
Barbara Fouts , who is also an assistant director of career development at North Central, shares what interns most commonly tell her they learn at internships:
- Learning how to introduce themselves and tell their stories
- Learning how to communicate with a supervisor and handle challenging work situations in their chosen field
- Approaching problems independently
- Knowing how to ask for additional work
- Recognizing strengths and weaknesses
These are universal skills that don’t really get taught in a workplace—you’re essentially expected to have picked them up by the time you enter the professional realm. Internships are a great way to pick them up before they become essential to finding or maintaining your chosen career path.
A Door to Opportunity
Internships are a great way to decide what you want from your professional life. Penny Loretto, writing for The Balance , says, “In addition to gaining exposure and professional experience in the field, (internships) also provide an opportunity to see if the particular career field is the right one (for you).”
You should certainly use internships to get a feel for whether a certain field is something you can see yourself doing for the rest of your life. College is the right time to try things out, as you have plenty of time and resources to help you adjust your goals if needed.
Among the most important tips for how to get an internship in college is to start looking early. While you don’t necessarily have to do an internship before you graduate, it will almost assuredly make things easier for you.
Fouts says there are three keys to completing an internship before graduation according to a recent NACE survey:
- You’ll find a job more quickly
- You’ll get more job offers
- You’ll earn more money at your first job
While applying for and completing multiple internships is a smart strategy, you should still ensure you make the most of every internship, even if you are unsure of exactly what you want to do. That is because an internship is more than just a preview of a “real” job. A primary benefit of internship placement is that you can make a vital connection with a potential employer.
According to Loretto, “By doing a great job and completing more than what is required of you in your internship, you will be creating a great impression that can provide a great reference letter at the least, and may even … lead to a potential job offer.
“When you leave the organization at the end of the internship, you should ask for a recommendation letter that you can keep on file for future reference.”
Fouts says, “Internships are about building skills, relationships, and connections. Every person you meet who you can get to remember you could be the stepping stone to your next position. I still have connections with people I met at my i nternships jobs even now.”
Internships allow you to gain a competitive edge
There is a certain amount of faith that goes into every hiring situation. It doesn’t always work out this way, but employers often have to choose between multiple candidates for a job who has just about the same credentials, equally impressive resumes, and may even come recommended by similarly impressive people. While there’s no easy secret to make yourself stand out, an internship experience is a great start.
Professional career coach Suchi Musaddi wrote on LinkedIn that, “A college degree is important to make you capable enough to get … a fulfilling and well-paying job, but the skills you develop as an intern make you marketable ... You can develop good work ethics, aptitude and flexible skills through internships, which is what employers look for.”
It’s even more helpful if you have a specific place in mind where you want to work and you can target that company or firm for your internship. Most workplaces put a high value on hiring from within, and that often includes interns.
Fouts says, “Employers use internships to try out potential talent—it’s a three-month interview. Employers say that when looking at two equal candidates, an internship with their company or industry can make the difference.”
There is proof in the numbers. Top Universities uncovered research done by asking employers what they looked for in candidates. They said, “Research by High Fliers (research firm) in 2017 found (more than) half of … recruiters warned that college graduates who had ‘no previous professional experience at all are unlikely to be successful during the selection process and have little or no chance of receiving a (job offer).’
“In addition, 87 percent of respondents to the ISE Development Survey in 2018 ‘agreed that students who had completed an internship or placement had better skills than those who did not have this internship experience.’”
The data tells the truth: internships simply make it more likely you will get hired for a paying job.
Get Started on the Path to your Career
Before you can work on internships in college , you need to get into college first. Your school should provide you with the resources you need to make every step of your path to a career easier, so choosing where to get your degree is actually one of the first and most vital choices you’ll make in your professional life.
Look for a school like North Central College. Their office of career development provides the resources you need—anything from updating your resume, to making informed choices between internship opportunities, to help with how to write a cover letter for internships in college.
