About Writopia Lab
Do you love kids? Are you excited by the idea of helping children learn to write short stories and plays with beginnings, middles, and (drum roll) endings? Writopia Lab, an award-winning 501(c)3 non-profit that runs the country's best creative writing workshops for kids ages 6 to 18, is looking for interns for our Park Slope Location.
Since its formation in New York City in 2007, Writopia Lab has grown into a nationwide community of young writers. Our mission is to foster joy, literacy, and critical thinking in children and teens from all backgrounds through creative writing. We create a safe and engaging space for writers at all stages of the writing process, and we aim to provide the creative inspiration, individual attention, and intellectual environment that may not be available to them at school.

What Interns Do:
Our interns are half teaching assistants, half camp counselors, who are able to serve as role models to our young writers while cultivating their love for writing and confidence. While in workshop, interns provide typing, editorial, and moral support to our writers.

Requirements:
We are in need of interns who find it easy to be supportive and enthusiastic about young writers' work and who can learn to be thoughtful editors and guides. Completed degrees are NOT required to apply, and we will accept applicants with majors or minors--or a strong background in--English, Literature, Creative Writing, or Education. Internships start in September, and all interns are required  to commit through the end of the trimester.
This is a paid position

How to Apply:
If you are excited by the idea of joining a community of writers and helping children and teens learn to write, please apply! (Don’t forget to attach your resume, cover letter, and answer the question “Why do you want to work at Writopia?”).
