CREATIVE WRITING & ESSAYS
ONLINE & PRINT PUBLICATIONS
As the Logistics and Communications Director for the HerCampus Queen’s Chapter, I kept minutes of all executive and general meetings, created and sent out monthly meeting newsletters, scheduled weekly content to publish, and coordinated writers on the team.
After attending the Her Campus National Intercollegiate Conference at Columbia University, NYC in July, I published a piece on my experience that appeared in the ‘Top Chapter Articles’ section on the homepage of the site.
As the Music and Entertainment Writer at Cliche Magazine, I contributed to both the online and print publications each month, taking on a cover story within just a few months. I conducted interviews with celebrities and artists including Chris Murray, Kelsea Ballerini, Parade of Lights, and more. Following strict editorial deadlines, I worked cooperatively with copy editors and department directors on assignments whilst staying in frequent contact with the editor in chief, editorial team, and various PR agents.
