What do I need to know as a student before I apply to this program?

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 taking on responsibilities and is a problem-solver, who can think on his/her feet and navigate the unexpected internship situations. The intern must be able to meet due dates and work with the Internship coordinator, onsite supervisor, and colleagues at the internship sites.
