Internships & Apprenticeships

Want to join a group of literary people who know how to have some fun?!

Join our SummerWrite Team! We will be looking for SummerWrite Apprentices, SummerWrite Interns, and SummerWrite Photo Interns. See below for more info!

SummerWrite Apprentice and SummerWrite Internship applications are due March 31, 2018. Photo intern applications are accepted on a rolling basis.


Each year during our SummerWrite camp program we have high school and college apprentices, who assist in the classrooms, and college interns who assist in the office with the youth department.

Writers & Books SummerWrite Apprenticeship offers high school (junior and seniors) and college students the chance to work in classrooms with teaching artists of various backgrounds.

Apprentices work three to five weeks out of the summer and are an integral part of SummerWrite. SummerWrite is Writers & Books’ 9-week reading and writing youth camp program for kids ages 5-18. Each camp runs 1 week (with the exception of our teen mastery class), either full day or half day, and include such topics as Harry Potter, Magic Tree House, playwriting, poetry, songwriting, etc.

Apprentices will gain experience in youth arts education, literary programming, child care/youth development, and exposure to life inside an arts non-profit. This is an ideal position for an aspiring educator, writer, or anyone who is interested in a career in the arts.
