In addition to our Writing Fellowships, we also offer creative internships and staff internships at the Deep Center. This isn’t your typical internship. No mindless phone-answering here. Deep’s internships are competitive and demanding. We treat our interns like paid staff and expect a lot of them, so that each intern walks away with a rewarding experience. We accept applications year-round, from professionals and students for creative and nonprofit staff internships.

Creative Internships: Our creative interns are students or professional artists who help us create our beautiful books and build our branding so we can tell Savannah about our incredible DeepKids.
