Ball State University students will work as interns at this year’s conference. We’re very excited to introduce a new generation to Midwest Writers Workshop. Here’s what they’ll be doing.

2014 Social Media Tutors

Three interns will be working as social media tutors. You can schedule a 45-minute session (on Friday or Saturday) to discuss both the “how” and “why” of social media: for example, how to start a blog, or for the more advanced, how to increase the readership of your blog, as well as why you should use social media as a writer. If you’d like to sign up for one of these free sessions, you will get an email from MWW Director Jama Bigger explaining how to start that process.


2014 Agent Assistants

Five interns will be working as assistants to the agents. Before the conference, they will communicate with you to schedule pitches, and during the conference, they’ll keep time and make sure things run smoothly. If you signed up to pitch, you should be hearing from one of these interns soon.
