Careers in Writing - Work Experience Opportunity

Are you a second year student interested in a career as a writer or one that involves writing?
Then this opportunity is for you.
It is with ‘The Writer’, the world’s biggest language consultancy.
It is a chance to go on a 2 day insight course/work experience with a chance of a further paid placement.

'The Writer' describes the opportunity in the following way: -

‘Every year, we gather about 20 people together for two days of creativity, workshops and fun stuff. Along the way we’ll talk to you about how you can make a career out of writing for business, show you how our agency works, and some Writer folk will tell you their own stories of how they got into business writing. We might even get you working with us on a live project. Then we usually pick two people from each year to come back and join us for a short paid internship. (And some of those have ended up working here.)’

The dates are Thursday 14th and Friday 15th April 2016
Applications are open now, and close on 4th March
You can find all the details here

It will be of interest if you-

‘You already write for your course
 Maybe you study English, journalism or creative writing. Or maybe you just write a lot of essays.

You write in your spare time too
You might write for your student paper, a blog, or fiction. It doesn’t matter as long as you write.

You’re a bit of a word geek
You have a tendency to get excited or properly riled up by all kinds of writing. From tube ads to tubes of toothpaste, Booker Prize winners to Charlie Brooker.

 Send us 300 words telling us why we should pick you (and a way for us to get in touch with you) to . Make sure ‘Word Experience’ and your name are in the subject line. And get it to us by Friday 4th March.’
