Experiential learning opportunities.
The Public & Professional Writing program offers and supports a range of experiential learning for students looking to expand and complement their studies, as well as prepare for the professional world.
Check out our searchable internship database !
PPW internships are distinct from many other internships offered at the University. These internships are designed to focus closely on the theory and practice of writing, integrating a significant intellectual exploration of the Public and Professional Writing internship experience.
We recommend that you register for Handshake , the University's comprehensive career services platform. They have a large internship database, and provide you direct information about upcoming career fairs, networking events, and on-campus interview information.
What will I learn during a PPW internship?
PPW interns keep a journal, prepare a major project about their experience, attend a weekly class (ENGCMP 1900: Internship in PPW), and prepare a speech and letter recapping their internship experience. When establishing internship agreements with agencies and companies, we agree that our PPW interns will spend at least 50 percent of their time on the job writing. Students commit a minimum of 10–15 hours per week to the internships and are expected to perform as reliable and responsible professionals.
On site, you can expect to have a productive, substantive writing experience where you will learn from and contribute to the sponsoring agency, company, or project.
Who is eligible for PPW internships?
PPW internships are available only to PPW majors or students who have been accepted into the PPW Certificate program . Internships are offered during the fall, spring, and summer terms (if you have an out-of-town internship, arrangements can be made to allow you to complete ENGCMP 1900 online).
How do I register for a PPW internship?
Are ppw students eligible for financial assistance.
Yes. Several endowments provide grants for Pitt undergraduates pursuing various internships. Awards are given on a competitive basis to provide grants for internships and support for living expenses for out-of-town internships. For more details and an application for funding, please visit the English Department internship page .
Who do I contact with additional questions?
Reach out to Sarah Leavens , the internship coordinator for the English Department. Whether you're on the market for your first internship or have general questions after reading this page, Brenda can recommend great internships based on your interests as well as answer any questions you may have.
The point of an independent study is to allow you to propose a course of study (not just a project) in an area for which we do not currently offer courses.
The director of the PPW program can support you in your independent study or you can ask a faculty member who teaches in the program to serve as your academic sponsor.
You may not propose an independent study that replicates a course that we already offer. The number of credits you register for is determined by the number of hours you will invest in the course:
Most students propose 3-credit independent studies.
Please write a proposal in memo format that includes the below information:
Be sure that your academic sponsor approves of your plan. It is worthwhile to have a couple of conversations with them while you are drafting. Submit your completed proposal to the director of PPW. When it is approved, the appropriate number of credits (usually 3) will be added to your schedule.
When the term starts, you are responsible for following your syllabus and for meeting with your academic sponsor regularly (at least once a month). You may alter your proposed plan only with the permission of your sponsor.
Students’ final projects for the independent studies are often interesting pieces for others in the program to read, so we like to post them online. You can see the final projects of some past PPW students below. Keep in mind that these projects represent only part of their independent study work.
- A description of the projects you will write. You need to revise as part of your work, but that doesn’t mean that you have to revise all your writing. For example, you can write two short papers that don’t get revised along with a longer project that does get revised.
- A syllabus, with dates, that indicates when you will complete readings and writing projects or drafts. You cannot make all your writing due at the end of the term: writing projects (or drafts of writing projects) must be due throughout the term.
Undergraduates are welcome to apply for research opportunities to pursue interests that they have developed while taking classes in the Composition program.
The Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (OUR) allows students to define and carry out research projects with the support of a faculty mentor. They also offer exciting field research opportunities and small grants.
OUR's Spring, Summer, and Fall Undergraduate Research Awards give you a stipend the term you are doing your research. You can read more about deadlines and applications on the OUR site.
The University Honors College (UHC) also supports undergraduate research. Browse the research opportunities that are available in the Summer, Fall, and Spring . These include fellowships based in the community, arts, interdisciplinary fields, health, archive work, and more.
All such experiential learning in the Composition program must comply with the Guidelines for Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Teaching Experience . These guidelines will also help you to determine how many credits should be awarded for the experience.
You can work with an individual faculty member who wants a teaching assistant by using the ENGCMP 1901 UTA: Teaching and Tutoring Writing course number. Most often, you will be helping to support a class you took previously. To pursue this option, have a conversation with the faculty member you would like to work with, then obtain a form from the English Advising Office, which both you and the instructor will complete and sign. When you return it to English Advising, one of the advisors will assign it a “class number” (a five-digit number for registration purposes), and give you a permission number for self-enrollment.
All experiential learning in the Composition program must comply with the Guidelines for Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Teaching Experience . These guidelines will also help you to determine how many credits should be awarded for the experience.
The University Honors College administers the Chancellor's Undergraduate Teaching Fellowships , which award students $800 for joint student-faculty teaching projects. These fellowships are designed to enrich course offerings and to improve teaching through faculty-UTA collaboration in the planning and implementation of creative teaching projects. The fellowships are available for one term, either fall or spring. See the CUTF page for application details and deadlines.
Tutoring for the University Writing Center is a rewarding experience for anyone interested in the teaching of writing, literacy, editing and publishing, and working one-on-one with fellow students and writers. To become a peer tutor, you should
The following year, you may apply for employment in the Writing Center for pay but not credit. For more information, visit the Writing Center's peer tutoring page.
Profiles of Professional Writing Majors Who Have Held Internships
Sai allena ’19 market research intern at athene consultancy (singapore).
How did your Professional Writing major help you with your internship? “It provided me with a communication framework to get my message across effectively. Since it was a market research internship, the requirements were all in report writing and researching.”
What did you learn from the internship? “ The inner workings of a firm, how to work better within a group. It allowed me to take what I’ve learned in class and apply it to a real-world setting.”
Advice for PW majors looking for internships “Start early if you can, know your strengths and how to communicate them effectively, know your weaknesses and learn how to not see them as limitations rather they are a part of your individuality. Be sure to learn how to communicate about yourself in a reflective and respective manner, and always keep in mind who your audience is.”
Sara Azalone ’19 Congressional Progressive Caucus Intern (Washington D.C.)
How did your Professional Writing major help you with your internship? “ I wrote every day because I was in charge of writing a lot of reports for [the political consultant for whom I worked]. A major task was reading the 50 newspapers and writing a daily report. Here, it was vital to be concise yet explain a ton of information every morning, and I definitely exercised the PW major during that task every morning. If the report was too long, employees would probably be deterred to read it. Using rhetoric skills was key to spread information every morning.”
What did you learn from the internship? “ I learned how to use information for persuasive arguments, how to manage time, how to read things faster, and how to interact in a professional environment.”
Advice for PW majors looking for internships “ Some schools don’t have a PW major, so explaining [to potential employers] what the major is would be helpful. I would say a lot of responses were surprised. For example, in an interview I would exemplify how we fine-tune rhetoric and have honed analytical skills. It’s an impressive trait that can be used anywhere. On that note, I would encourage applying to a broader range of internships since PW is literally used everywhere. I thought at first that I would focus more on my Political Science major during this internship, but PW was used just as much.”
Olivia Bauer ’19 Editorial Intern at American Technical Publishers (Chicago)
How did your Professional Writing major help you with your internship? “I got the opportunity to draft memos and write parts for textbooks. It was a lot more writin g than I think the company expected that I partake in, so having my writing skills was definitely attrac tive.”
What did you learn from the internship? “I learned how to work independently and under a strict timeline. I also learned professionalism and what that entails in a work environment. Mostly though, attention to detail since that is the most crucial aspect to editing.”
Advice for PW majors looking for internships “Go for it, even if you don’t think you’ll get it! Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions! It shows that you are engaged and interested. Be confident in yourself, you will do great things!”
Abby Gooding ’19 Development Intern at the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy (Boston)
How did your Professional Writing major help you with your internship? “As a development intern, I was mostly responsible for reaching out to potential donors and planning events. Each of my writing courses, like technical writing, report writing, and writing for media, helped me out a ton as I worked on each of my projects this summer.”
What did you learn from the internship? “Honestly, I learned that having a wealth of experience allowed me to know what I do and don’t want to do.”
Advice for PW majors looking for internships “Don’t be afraid to take an internship that seems like it doesn’t have anything to do with writing. Even if you think you won’t write, there is a good chance you will. No matter what position you have, the skills you learn in class will be directly impactful. And most importantly, try to get diversity each summer as best you can. Finding out what you don’t like is just as important as finding out what you do like.”
Haley Jena, ’19 Editorial Production Intern at Coveteur (New York City)
How did your Professional Writing major help you with your internship? “I knew I had certain skills that I’ve gotten from courses from Professional Writing, so I was able to apply those in my internship projects. All of the copyediting courses I took really helped, as it was an editorial internship. And courses that focus on writing for different audiences and rhetoric were also really applicable as I was producing articles over the summer.”
What did you learn from the internship? “It definitely confirmed my career interest in editorial writing. It was nice to see how the skills that we always learn in class are transferred to the real world.”
Advice for PW majors looking for internships “Think about what skills you have and what skills they’re looking for, and use your skills to make you seem like the perfect match. Be sure to optimize your skills on your resume and your cover letter. One thing I did that helped a lot was have a few of my professors look over my cover letter and resume. It was great to get an outside perspective, and I think you should aim to get a lot of eyes on your content.”
Jacob Nitzberg ’19 Sponsorship Activation Intern at FC Cincinnati, Major League Soccer (Cincinnati)
How did your Professional Writing major help you with your internship? “It wasn’t specific to writing but so many others aspects of the major such as professional communication helped me throughout my internship.”
What did you learn from the internship? “I learned valuable team work and networking skills.”
Advice for PW majors looking for internships “You don’t necessarily have to obtain a writing internship. It’s okay to do something that is not within the realm of a typical internship for a PW major, because you can still learn lots of important skills and network regardless of your position”.

132 Lytle Hall Kutztown, PA 19530
BACHELOR OF ARTS
What do Game of Thrones, The Avengers, TMZ, The New York Times, Amazon, and every web site you visit including this page have in common? They all rely on professional writers to craft their narratives, scripts, informational copy, and promotional content.
There is perhaps no degree more versatile than Professional Writing. Writers work in every industry, government agency, and influential institution. They are behind the content and branding of all entertainment media. They write news stories, technical documents, podcasts, user manuals, games, novels, poetry, social media, screenplays, grants, reviews, analyses, and so much more. During every waking hour of every day we’re surrounded by skillfully crafted language produced by professional writers.
CHOOSE YOUR WRITING PATH
Professional Writing majors at Kutztown University begin their careers with WRI 100—Reading and Writing in the Professions, building a solid foundation in critical analysis, drafting, and editing. Next, they take core classes in copy editing, technical writing, journalism, and creative writing. From there, they choose electives from a wide array of specialty areas like public relations, information design, magazine writing, investigative journalism, and fiction writing that blend practical acumen with creative dynamism.
Professional Writing majors are encouraged to further hone their writing skills with minors and coursework in related fields like English, Public Relations, Communications, Social Media Studies, Marketing, History, Political Science, and modern languages like Spanish, French, and German. The result: writers who approach a broad range of professional writing situations with confidence and skill.
PROFESSIONAL WRITING EXPERIENCE
Because hands-on experience in a professional setting is essential to a professional writer’s development, the professional writing degree culminates in a directed internship. Supported by hands-on advisement, you’ll work alongside professionals in business, publishing, journalism, nonprofit, and other organizations where writers are in demand, producing content, articles, promotional materials, reports, and other exemplary writing artifacts to utilize later in your job search; gaining hands-on editing experience; and making valuable connections that can lead to employment opportunities.

by Tom Corson-Knowles | 10 comments
There are hundreds of writer’s conferences, workshops, and events in North America every year.
All these events can be overwhelming, and it can be hard to find the right event for you.
That’s why our team put together this detailed list of the 200+ best writer’s conferences in North America every year.
Important Note on Writer’s Conferences
All of these events are annual, and usually take place around the same time each year. However, given the ongoing situation with Covid-19 pandemic, many of these conferences have been cancelled or postponed.
If you’re interested in attending any of these events, please check their respective websites for more detailed information about cancellations or postponements, or for information on their scheduled events for 2022.

How to use this list.
You can use the search feature to quickly sort through the list to find the best writer’s conferences that match what you’re looking for.
For example, if you live in Texas, you can search for “Texas” or “TX” and find only those conferences that are within a few hours drive of where you live.
Once you’ve found a few conferences that look interesting to you, check out their websites or call them up for more information to make sure it’s a good fit for you.
Why You Should Attend a Writer’s Conference
Going to writer’s conferences is a big investment of time, money and effort. Being away from your family and day-to-day responsibilities is costly, so you want to make sure it’s worth your time.
Writer’s conferences are not just about learning how to write better . Here are a few benefits of attending writer’s conferences that you should know about.
1. Meet Other Editors, Authors, and Writers
At a large writer’s conference, you have an opportunity to meet hundreds of people that may be interested in you and your work. You will find people who can be very supportive and are ready to help you. But the best thing about meeting all these new people is you’ll be able to develop lifelong friendships and working relationships.
2. A Better Place to Learn
One of the reasons we write is because we love to read and gain knowledge. We get excited about learning new things and gain a solid understanding of writing and publishing. Writer’s conferences give new insights about writing craft, give you encouragement and support, and gives you real actionable advice about the journey of becoming a successful writer.
3. Improve Professional Effectiveness
Professionals in every industry know they need to attend conferences and industry events to stay at the top of their game. Writer’s conferences are an excellent way of improving your knowledge about your writing craft, and you’ll also learn about how to be professional by listening to the stories of other successful writers and what they did when they were just starting out.
4. Get Inspired
When you’re at a Writers’ Conference with thousands of other writers, authors, and publishers who are all passionate about writing, you will also get the desire to write more than you ever have before. It’s a great way to stay motivated and inspired and to make sure that you keep working on your writing career.
Everyone at a writer’s conference shares a common love and passion for writing and stories, but they all come from different backgrounds and perspectives. This creates a dynamic community of writers. Many writers feel like they’ve finally “come home” when they show up at a writer’s conference for the first time.
So what are you waiting for? Find a writer’s conference near you and sign up!
Your family of writers will be there waiting for you.

Hello! Can you direct me to a really good writers conference in California. I write non fiction.
Hey Anne, I don’t know much about each conference here so I can’t recommend you a specific one. We do have 15 or so conferences located in California. You can find them quickly by using the search function (ctrl+f).
