To figure out if this program is for me, can you tell me what the typical Writing Internship intern is like as a student? How do I know if I will be able to handle the work?

Absolutely, the typical student intern participating in the Writing Internship Program is a self-motivated, self-reliant, independent-thinking student. He or she is comfortable with responsibility and is a problem-solver that can think on their feet to deal navigate the unexpected in internship situations. The intern must able to meet due dates, and should enjoy engaging in writing projects both individually and through interacting with their Internship coordinator, onsite supervisor, and colleagues at the internship sites.
