LVW has an established relationship with Champlain College’s Professional Writing Program (PWP). Each year we interview a student in his or her final year of undergraduate study to see if we would be a good fit for their internship experience, which is a required course for graduation. The intern reports to the President and together they determine the intern’s initiatives for the semester, ones that benefit both the student and the League.
Goals and objectives have ranged from writing committee guides to help with systems and operations within LVW to facilitating the LVW’s monthly MailChimp campaigns to laying out the quarterly newsletter, League Lines. The President is required to provide a written contract that elaborates on these goals and objectives at the start of the semester and then also provides a mid-term and final evaluation of the student’s performance. The student works remotely approximately 10 hours each week to accomplish the goals set out at the beginning of the semester.
Each internship experience is as much tailored to the student’s learning style, management preferences, and long-term professional goals as possible. Supervision happens in-person, through email, and through texting. It is the responsibility of both the President and student to ensure that the goals and objectives are realized and that the student is developing new or sharpening existing skills.
Fortunately, LVW has had three Rockstar interns since the relationship with Champlain began and the students have felt the same, often sticking around for an additional semester for extra work experience and continued involvement even though they are no longer receiving course credit. With students’ help, LVW has been able to advance its own initiatives in a great many ways while also providing job training and professional development. As such, this has become a wonderful, mutually beneficial relationship. LVW hopes that the relationship with Champlain will continue to thrive and that it will eventually result in a larger population of student members joining the organization.

Brilliant Light Publishing
Our mission at Brilliant Light Publishing is to promote the work of poets and writers from the New England community who illuminate the inner and outer states of our natural and cultural environment. We accomplish this by featuring poets and writers; providing their name, a brief author bio, a sample of their work and where to purchase books, as well as details of their upcoming readings, workshops, and other events. We also intend to support the many poets and writers, and booksellers of the New England are by providing links to their websites. Brilliant Light will be promoting League of Vermont Writers programs on their website as the programs become available.
