The Focus Writers’ Academy – Paid Opportunities

In the climate of uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic, many internships and junior journalist roles have disappeared. This leaves an entire generation of young, ambitious writers with few opportunities to gain valuable experience and start a career in the profession.

The Focus Writers’ Academy offers paid rolling internships of 2 weeks – 3 months, during which interns can build a portfolio of professionally-written articles about relevant, trending topics under experienced editorial guidance. 

Our editors will supply instructive feedback throughout the programme, along with tips on using Google Trends, SEO, style guides and other writing tools. You will be given the opportunity to demonstrate that you can write popular content that will resonate with readers. We aim to help equip you with experience to last your entire career.

To apply for consideration to participate in this programme, email [email protected] with your CV, a cover letter, and links to your online published work.
