Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Writing NSW have suspended their internships. Contact us with any questions.

Writing NSW has two different internship periods. The first is from January until June, and the second is from July until December.

Each half year, we look for three enthusiastic, creative people with an interest in writers and writing to join our volunteer intern program.

This is an excellent opportunity for emerging arts workers with an interest in literature, communications or arts management to develop their skills by working with our talented and supportive team.

As one of our interns, you will produce online content, work on digital and other projects, contribute to communications strategies, liaise with publishers and the broader writing community, help manage our library, assist at events, and undertake general administration tasks as required.

Each of our interns work one day per week at our office in Callan Park, Lilyfield. They work closely with our Membership & Administration Officer, Project and Communications Officer and Program Officer, under the direction of our CEO. Our interns receive a transport and meal allowance for each day of work and they are able to undertake a short course at Writing NSW free of charge, subject to availability.
