Leonard P. – W. Newton, MA
Salisbury School Salisbury, Connecticut
Leonard wrote for the literary journal of his school and was inspired by a well-known author of historical fiction who spoke to his class. Leonard thought it might be interesting to intern for an author during the summer.
We matched Leonard to a well-known writers group in Boston, where he helped out in the office and was able to attend seminars in their summer writing series. The Boston Phoenix described the group as “the best place to hobnob with the literati.” Leonard said,” I was exposed to workshops on fiction, poetry and screen writing. I learned about issues writers face and met some of Boston’s best writers. It was an amazing experience.
