Summer Camp Internships

Houston, TX, USA

Job Type

Internship

About the Role

Writers in the Schools is seeking high school and college students to assist with the organization
and facilitation of our annual summer Creative Writing Camps in June and July 2024.

Each summer, Writers in the Schools and the School Literacy and Culture Project at Rice University
sponsor Creative Writing Camp (CWC). More than 1,300 children in grades K-12 participate in
CWC where they write stories, poetry, essays, and plays in a fun and supportive environment.

Working alongside professional writers and poets, the student interns will have the opportunity to
work in a variety of areas and gain experience in creative writing instruction, early childhood
education, nonprofit administration, and arts education.

About the Company

Over thirty years ago, there was a group of creative writers who wanted to share the joy of stories with children. They grabbed their pencils and paired up with public school teachers. Together they changed the way children experience reading and writing. The WITS program makes learning an exciting adventure while improving the academic, social, and creative abilities of children.

Our founders, Phillip Lopate and Marv Hoffman saw an opportunity to capitalize on the writing talent in the University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program – one of the best in the country – and in the diverse Houston community, to provide a valuable service to the area schools.
