What Students Say About This Internship . . .

"My internship with New Life Church's creative department was truly phenomenal. I had some great opportunities to write several pieces for their online platform and work with some wonderful people. They were so encouraging and appreciative, not to mention gave great feedback. My writing became so much more concise, and I really learned a lot about writing for a specific audience. I loved every minute of it and would definitely encourage writing students to look into it if they have the opportunity."
