Some of you may know I have been a member of the Professional Writer’s Association of Canada (PWAC) for a little over a year now. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a newbie freelancer, and I’ve really enjoyed meeting members from across Canada and hearing how they got their start.
Well, a little while ago I was asked to share my experiences as an intern at Pinellas News for the London chapter’s newsletter. I was a bit surprised to be asked to give advice to other members, especially since I am one of the youngest and least experienced of the bunch. Still it was great to get my experience down in writing, and as I wrote the piece I was reminded all over again what an incredible learning opportunity the entire internship was.
As I prepare to embark on my fourth stint as an intern (more on that soon) I’ll be making sure to read over this piece and make some mental notes to bring with me to the next publication.
