On Bridge Building & Puns: Fall 2019 PWE Interns Present

Congratulations to our two Professional Writing & Editing (PWE) capstone students of Fall 2019, who skillfully presented highlights of their internship experiences at the combined PWE/Creative Writing capstone event on Tuesday, December 10.

Both interns dedicated 140 hours over the fall term to contributing writing, social media, and research expertise to different magazines.

Haleigh McCourt interned with Change Seven, an online literary magazine, where she bridged her two writing concentrations—professional and creative—and worked on web archives, rejection letters, and author agreements.
Savannah Carr interned with New South Media, where she earned herself the office title “Pun Queen” and assumed responsibility for the organization’s social media and online presence, amongst other duties—including performing interviews, writing articles, and marketing.

We extend our gratitude to their internship site sponsors, faculty and staff from the English department, and these interns’ families and friends who have supported them throughout their capstone work.
