Writer Intern

June - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I enjoyed being able to work remotely because it fit more with my work and school schedules. I also like the quick one-on-one communication I had with my supervisor; it felt like I had someone to confide in about any questions I had about the article I was writing.

What I wish was different

When sending my article drafts in for revision, I would've liked to see a second opinion more often. When I first started, there were two people reading the article and giving me different points of feedback, but as I continued my internship, the other person disappeared. I believe I could shape my articles better and be more confident in my writing if there were more eyes looking at it.

Advice

Be sure to schedule in your deadlines and events (if you were asked to go to any) into your work/school schedule. Yes, the internship is remote but story ideas are released every week. Make time to include planning and writing your drafts and revisions in your schedule so you don't fall behind.

Editorial Intern

October 2016 - May 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

It was an online internship, so it really gave me the opportunity to learn to manage my time and work whenever I could while still meeting weekly deadlines. It also allowed me to attend events around Atlanta, such as the Sweetwater 420 Festival, as a member of the press and interview artists and musicians.

What I wish was different

Nothing! I loved it.

Advice

Do not wait until the last minute to get started on your work! Deadlines sneak up on you, especially when there's no one looking over your shoulder to make sure you get it done.
