Writing Internships: Presentation Session Tuesday, April 26

As you may or may not know, the English department offers a recurring Writing Internship course (English 497), during which students gain practical work experience, make professional connections, and reflect on the nature of careers open to those proficient in the study and use of language. This year, nine of our students are completing their internships, and will be presenting an informational and poster session on the work they have done in their positions and in the course.

The presentation will take place on Tuesday, April 26 from 6-7 p.m. in Trimble Forum. If you’ve ever wondered “What can I do with an English major?” or “How can I help prepare myself for an exciting post-graduate career?,” you owe it to yourself to stop by. Come help celebrate the achievements of this outstanding group of student interns.
