Calling all second-year undergraduates

Our yearly Word Experience is back and we’re ready for your applications.

We're looking for second-year undergraduates to come to our two-day Word Experience on 15th and 16th December 2011. It’s your chance to come and get inspired to write for a living.

We’ll show you how you can make a career out of writing for business. By giving you plenty of writing exercises, fun brainstorms and home-made pecha kuchas* to get your teeth into. (*Google has the answer.) We might even get you working with us on a live project.

And if you’re really good, we have a grand prize of two paid apprenticeships.

Keep reading if:

You already write for your course

Maybe you study English, journalism or creative writing. Or maybe even PR or marketing and advertising.

You write in your spare time too

You might write for your student paper, a blog, or fiction. It doesn’t matter as long as you write.

And you’re a bit of a word geek

You have a tendency to get excited or properly riled up by all kinds of writing. From tube ads to tubes of toothpaste, Booker Prize winners to Charlie Brooker.

Yes that’s me. What do I need to do?

Send us 300 words telling us why it should be you (and a way for us to get in touch with you) to [email protected]. Make sure ‘Word Experience’ and your name are in your subject line. And get it to us by 1st November 2011.
