Happy Trails to Our Intern, Claire Korzen

They say all good things must come to an end, and so we bid farewell to our intern extraordinaire, Claire Korzen. Claire, a native of Kernersville and a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, has been an intern with the Network since June. But she is leaving us for the greener pastures of a full-time paying job, and we want to take this moment to thank her for her efforts on behalf of the Network and wish her happy trails.

Claire has been invaluable during her time here, writing, copyediting, proofreading, and performing the most grueling of intern tasks: cleaning up our membership database. She wrote the following articles for the blog:

National Novel Writing Month Starts November 1!
Calling All Writers: Apply for the 2013-2014 NCAC Artist Fellowships
Happy (Belated) Birthday to O. Henry!
This Saturday: 100 Thousand Poets for Change
Salisbury Writers and Artists Guild Launches New Collaborative Website

And wrote an article for our Fall Newsletter. She also rolled up her sleeves and helped us get ready for both the NC Literary Hall of Fame inductions and our Fall Conference.

Thank you, Claire. We wish you all the best out there in the “real” world. We’re sure you’ll find much success. And don’t be a stranger.

If you or someone you know is interested in being an intern with the North Carolina Writers’ Network, e-mail your resume to communications director Charles Fiore at Please include a brief statement of purpose that lists your availability. NCWN internships are un-paid (except for our undying gratitude and the possibility that you’ll curry favor from the literary gods) and carry the expectation of a part-time workload, 10-20 hours per week.
