Maybe you’ve been mesmerized by a soaring keynote, or fidgeted through a dull one, and wondered about the process that makes speeches what they are.
Maybe you’ve listened to a speech and thought, “I could make that better!”
If so, you might be just the person we’re looking for.
West Wing Writers offers paid internships to a select few candidates who are interested in learning more about a career in speechwriting.
We don’t expect interns to have written speeches before, but we do want people who love to write and are excellent researchers; people who are creative, curious, thoughtful, motivated, and dependable.
As an intern, you’ll be an integral part of the West Wing Writers team, giving you an insider’s view of the speechwriting process.
Our interns have gone on to write for senators and the Smithsonian, for cabinet secretaries and governors — even for the President of the United States.
Interns receive a $2,700 stipend each month.
We are currently accepting applications for fall internships, which run from September–December in our Washington, DC, New York City, and San Francisco offices. The application will close on June 1.Apply Today!
