Undergraduate PWE capstone students showcase their internship work

On Thursday the Professional Writing and Editing (PWE) program hosted the biannual PWE Poster Exhibition. PWE concentrators are required to complete a capstone internship  in professional or technical communication, and their posters are an opportunity for them to showcase their work for the university community. This fall, four students shared posters at the event: Nicole Atkinson, Tyler Hower, Liz Smith and Megan Sweeney.

The prize for best poster went to Tyler Hower, who interned with WVU Dining Services as a PR assistant and showcased work she did on promotional material, web content, and a training guide.

Liz Smith shared the “behind-the-scenes” world of HTML coding and editing for epubs at the Center for Literary Computing (CLC).

Megan Sweeney gave us a glimpse into the world of a newspaper editor at The Dominion Post, including when to break the rules of style.

Nicole Atkinson shared the cycle of an interview from research and preparation to multimedia artifacts for print, web, and video.

Thank you to everyone who supported these talented English majors by attending the poster exhibit, including the PWE graduate students (Alex Ries, Rachael Kelley, and Celeste Lantz) who performed the difficult task of evaluating and narrowing down the top poster presenter.
