“I go to seek a Great Perhaps” – the diary of a magazine intern
Hello! My name is Hayley Rogers and I am the current intern here at Practical Publishing. At 22 years old, it was not even a month ago that I was sitting in a small Erskine College classroom in the vivacious town of Due West, South Carolina, vigorously taking notes on a lecture of appearance versus reality in Shakespeare’s Othello. I now somehow find myself across the world sitting in a busy office, in the busy city of Stockport, at my own desk proofing articles and undertaking editorial tasks for international crafting magazines. To my surprise, I have not been asked to write a five-page paper on Shakespeare’s allusions to The Great Chain of Being in any of his work… yet. I’m still waiting!
Over the next couple of weeks I will be blogging about my adventure in the real world as an intern at Practical Publishing. I will be doing editorial projects, going to photo shoots and much more. For those who are interested in working for a publishing company or magazine, or simply want to read all about how their favourite craft magazines are put together, please join me on my journey as I share my experience here with you!
Hayley is getting to grips with UKisms such as being asked if she’d like ‘a brew’ in the morning!
