My name is Maggie. I’m graduating summa cum laude from North Carolina State University tomorrow with a BA in English. I plan to get a job in the publishing industry, hopefully working with books. Right now, I’ll be satisfied with an internship or anything that gets me the experience I need to be a great editor. I also aspire to become a published author and poet in the future, but we’ll see what happens!
I started this new blog as a way to keep track of what I’m doing and to hopefully get my name out there.
I’m currently working on four things:
- Trying to get a job (revising my resume and cover letter, sending them out, researching the industry, studying The Associated Press Stylebook and The Chicago Manual of Style)
- A long series of stories that I’ve been writing since 2004. The series is called XIII and was originally my ex-boyfriend’s idea. I’ve been posting it on my FictionPress account.
- Writing and revising poetry so I can send some out to literary magazines. I write one poem every day.
- Reading anything I can get my hands on. I love all books – from classics to crazy pop culture stuff.
I want this blog to be where I can rant and rave about my writing, talk about books, poetry, anything related to writing, and of course, my job search.
Enjoy, and be sure to drop me a line sometime!
