Internships & Networking, English and Creative Writing
Students interact with faculty who are not only talking about writing, but are actively doing it. Hear how they learn from Dr. Kenneth Pobo and James Esch about publishing poetry. Watch a short video clip.
Wordsworth Summer Conference
Dr. Daniel Robinson traveled with students to North West England to attend the Wordsworth Summer Conference. The trip was funded by the Robinson’s Homer C. Nearing Jr. Distinguished Professorship.
The advisors in Widener's English and creative writing program work with students to find valuable internship opportunities that promote real-life learning.
Students may also pursue an internship in another field of study to effectively position themselves for future employment. The goal is to get students to showcase their critical thinking and leadership skills in the field, so employers can see the difference they make in the workplace.
Here are some examples of recent English and creative writing internships and networking experiences at Widener.
Turk’s Head Review
Students work closely with the publisher of the small independent literary magazine and press, reviewing manuscripts, working on editing, and gaining experience in digital publishing. The Turk's Head Review is located in West Chester, Pa.
Undergraduate and Professional Conferences
Students attend regional undergraduate conferences as well as national professional conferences such as the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) to share their work and network with potential colleagues and employers.
