Etchings–UIndy’s Literary Magazine Staff Member

My minor was professional writing, so I’ve uploaded some of my technical writing and designs from my last semester at UIndy. I’ve also uploaded links to my blog posts from the tasks at my internship. As far as the broadsides posted below go, I posted them to show some of the marketing the Etchings staff did the past semester for the release of the literary magazine on campus.

I was one of  the poetry editors for Etchings during my last semester at The University of Indianapolis. The broadsides really helped give Etchings a new brand to promote the release party for the magazine and to promote submitting for next year’s magazine.  It was really rewarding to see all of our broadsides posted around campus with the new branded logo which attracted more people to the Etchings release party on April 21.

These are the marketing broadsides for Etchings. 

                                                                 

Internship–SEO Experience with an E-Commerce Business

I interned with an E-Commerce business, One Click Ventures. With them, I blogged  for 4 different stores that they have online. I wrote celebrity-based blogs for each of the stores in which I use their fashion as a way to promote their products.

Here are a couple of links to my posts! Check them out.

The idea behind blogging for each store was to incorporate celebrity news and fashion in order to market the sunglasses, scarves, reading glasses, and handbags. I searched online for the latest celebrity news, find out the scoop on what that celebrity was doing, compare the celeb’s fashion to what One Click’s stores have to offer, and make a blog post on the individual site that is goes with.

Interning with One Click was a  great experience! It improved my blogging and writing skills, and I couldn’t be more excited for that! There’s always room for improvement!

Second Story Flip Book for 6 and 7th Graders

I also created a flip book for 7th graders at Second Story. Second story (http://www.secondstoryindy.org/) is a creative writing programs for young students. I worked with two girls who wrote poetry to put their flip book together. I designed each page; they designed the front cover which were drawings of their own. They submitted a number of poems to me and I picked the best ones for their book. At the end of the project when the book was finished, there was a reading for the student’s work. I got to meet the girls for the first time and it was really rewarding to see them read their poems from the book I helped create.
