Intern

What I liked

I liked being able to interact with both the interns and students, and being involved within a growing creative writing community with people from all walks of life involved making art come to life together.

Maybe just a brief little training going over what might happen if a potential student suffers from an anxiety or panic attack--we need to make sure that they are safe and know we're looking out for them.

Advice

Really get to know the students coming here to visit, and really make it fun for them--you'll never know who might come to WC because of those experience!
