With few exceptions, interns assist Fighting Words staff with all aspects of programme delivery and project management. We offer a great opportunity for professional development in education and the arts in a supportive and fun environment.

Interns are part of everything we do at Fighting Words

Exciting Opportunities

Fighting Words interns are passionate about literature, writing, and words in general. Previous experience working with children and young people is a big advantage but a willingness to get stuck into new tasks is a must. From bringing out the bins to mentoring brilliant young minds, flexibility and open-mindedness is key. It also goes without saying that a sense of humour is required!
