West Wing Writers
Maybe you've never met an anecdote you didn't like.

Maybe you’ve got an ear for rhythm, an eye for detail, a mind for research — and a stomach for revision, revision, revision.

Maybe you’ve been mesmerized by a soaring keynote, or fidgeted through a dull one, and wondered about the process that makes speeches what they are.

At West Wing Writers, we offer paid internships to a few good candidates. We don’t expect interns to have written speeches before, but we do want people who love to write and are excellent researchers; people who are creative, curious, thoughtful, motivated, and dependable.

As an intern, you’ll get an insider’s view of the speechwriting profession and serve as an integral part of our team. Dates are flexible. Candidates who are available to work full-time are preferred. We hire interns in both our Washington, D.C. and New York City office locations.

We are not currently accepting internship applications, but visit us again. We start the application process for Fall-Winter internships in June, Winter-Spring in October, and Summer in January. Please note that rather than review applications on a rolling basis, we review all applications at the end of each application period.
