This 12-week writing internship is designed for anyone – from freshman to postgraduate students – looking to break into the online content writing scene.

As a writing intern, you’ll be guided through a 12-week training program that consists of four content modules. These cover training in writing for brands, search engine optimisation for writers, travel writing, and freelancing essentials.

Throughout this time, you’ll be mentored by a professional writer and editor as you grow your portfolio of published work.

The program runs over 12 weeks, and interns should expect to spend roughly 3–5 hours per week completing self-learning exercises, honing their writing skills, and learning how to stand out in the digital space.

Acceptance into the GVI Writing Academy is subject to the discretion of our editors.

  • one-on-one feedback and mentoring from one of our editors delivered through our virtual classroom space
  • a digital certificate of completion
  • a written testimonial from your editor.

Candidates who particularly empress our editors may be asked to join our pool of specialised freelance writers.
