I have some exciting news! I applied for an internship at a publishing company, and I got one of the six positions! I’m super excited about it because I met the Lead Editor at the AWP conference that I went to in Portland and I absolutely loved her.
I’d been checking up on their website since the conference, and I took the chance and submitted for the internship. I was hoping she’d remember me, but I wasn’t sure. She did! Which was awesome, but I was also afraid I was going to be WAY too enthusiastic when it came to the video interview. I think I managed to keep my cool.
It doesn’t start until the summer, and I’m super impatient to start, but when it does, it means I’ll be learning the ins and outs of the publishing world from marketing to formatting and editing.
Super cool, right?
It may not have anything to do with my manuscript, (which just went through a major overhaul), but I’ll be gaining an education that will be worth it for years to come.
