Why do an OxBright Literature & Writing Internship?

If you’re planning to apply to a competitive university, you probably already know how valuable it is to have relevant work experience as part of your application.

Writing and Literature work experience opportunities are valuable because they help you to make an informed decision about your future direction, based on hands-on experience. However, these opportunities are hard to come by and all too often they don’t involve more than shadowing, observing and making tea.

At OxBright, we’re passionate about giving you real opportunities, so you can try out a career for yourself, understand what the sector is really like in practice, decide on the path that’s right for you, and set yourself up for success.

On an OxBright Literature & Writing Internship, you will:

  • Work with an expert Mentor, who will support and challenge you to make the most of your internship
  • Work on a real Literature & Writing project – either an academic research paper (on a Literature Research Internship) or a real-life professional project (on a Work Experience Internship)
  • Learn more about the theory and practice of literature and writing
  • Gain valuable experience for your future university and career applications, and evidence to prove your passion for the subject
  • Receive a Certificate and a personalised Letter of Recommendation from your Mentor, which you can use as part of your university applications
