What Is the MuggleNet Internship Experience Like?
For a majority of Harry Potter fans, MuggleNet internships are one of the best ways to get more involved with the amazing fandom! As a Creative Editorialist intern, I was able to write some of the articles that MuggleNet publishes every day. Interns are given a mentor, who guides them throughout their internships (shoutout to Stephanie for being the best!). I was able to gain experience writing and then see it published in a place where other fans enjoy seeing the new content.
For my position these past few months, I wrote articles for the website that I thought would be enjoyable for readers. I learned how to create posts in many formats and more about the writing world. I got to meet many great people, including my mentor, during this experience. I gained more confidence with my writing than I thought I would going into this. With this newfound confidence, I applied for and got a freelance writing position, and now I get paid to do something I love! My favorite part of my internship experience was interacting with Stephanie and leaving her many late-night messages that only sometimes made sense.
Applying for this internship was one of the best decisions I have made in recent months. I can only speak from the perspective of a member of the Creative Team, but there are many other MuggleNet teams to join. So on that note, I asked some of the other interns to share more about their experiences. Check out what they have to say below!
I implore anyone with any interest at all to apply for an internship when applications open up again! You will be hard-pressed to find a better online environment with a greater group of people with the same interests as you. Just keep an eye on our social media accounts to know when applications are being accepted. With our internships ending soon, it’s exciting to think about where our MuggleNet careers will head from here!
