Creative Writing Internships in Africa
We’re excited to offer a wide range of creative writing internships in Africa – and online. All our writing internships are with African based development programs that tackle social or environmental issues on a grassroots level. As a writing intern with one of these organisations, you’ll help tell stories from the field, put impact into words, and help convince potential donors to get involved. These charity writing internships all have a slightly different emphasis; some are purely focused on grant writing, while others allow you to write for a number of platforms. But either way, you’ll sharpen your penmanship by helping to raise awareness of important development work in Africa. It’s a great way to build a writing portfolio, jumpstart creativity, and further a good cause.
Some of these writing internships are based in Africa, others can be done remotely, online. A few offer both options.
Depending on the internship, you can get experience with the following:
- Creative writing for internal blogs and external publications
- Online content writing
- Writing newsletters, press releases, and impact reports
- Putting together grant applications
