Exciting Opportunities to Match Your Academic and Career Goals!

Interns are responsible for leading workshops and workshop management, involvement in longer-term and special projects, regular administration tasks, assistance with managing our social media and digital content and editing/proofreading. 

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!
