Spring - and the PWE Poster Exhibit - Has Sprung

Four Professional Writing & Editing (PWE) capstone students showcased their internship work at the biannual PWE Poster Exhibit Thursday. Judges' and attendees' votes have been tallied, and the winner of the top poster award is:

Monty Sylvan, FiT Publishing

Monty described the range of editing tasks he undertook as an intern for the sports sciences publisher—from proofreading a journal to indexing a textbook.

Congratulations to all of the interns on their accomplishments this term, including:

Joseph Conrad, who helped to modernize the communications—from legal documents to social media—at Conrad Legal Corporation.

Devin Lacy, who constructed and deconstructed textbooks to create new editions and supplementary teaching material, including PowerPoints, for FiT Publishing.
Jeremy Maddox, who invited us onto a grant-writer’s whirling ride of research, proposals, and plans for a playground for disabled children via his work at Stepping Stones.

Thank you to everyone who supported these talented English majors by attending the poster exhibit and voting for their favorite posters. A special thanks to the events' judges, as well: Jessica Walker, Kasey Osborne, and Doug Phillips.
