The Board of Student Media is seeking an editor for Lingua for next year.  This is a financially compensated position through ASSP.  If interested please contact either the current editor, Lauren Olson, at olson16@spu.edu or Doug Thorpe, faculty advisor, at dthorpe@spu.edu.

The Board of Student Media is also seeking a board chair to fill in the remainder of the current academic year.  Duties include sending out agendas and running the meetings, which occur roughly twice a month for an hour.  There is no stipend but the chair is traditionally compensated financially at the end of the year.  This is a great opportunity to work with student leaders in media and with faculty, staff and administrators.  Build your resume!  Network!

Just before Thanksgiving, I got a job offer. Starting next week, I’ll be the publishing assistant at Simon and Schuster. I’ll be working most of the time for the publisher, Jonathan Karp, and the rest for a senior editor, Sean Manning. I had such a great experience interviewing there (part of their process is to have you compile a list of contemporary books you wish you’d had a part in publishing) and was largely chosen based off my list. I attached it, in case you’d be interested to see what I came up with.

I’m very excited for the position. Simon and Schuster publishes a mix of fiction and nonfiction (they’re the original publisher of Ray Bradbury’s Farenheit 451, but more recently Bob Dylan’s Chronicles, Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run, and Hillary Clinton’s What Happened), but I was chosen for my interest in fiction.

It’s been an interesting first few weeks with the holidays, not to mention HRC and her staff paid a visit to the office last week. Books were signed! Retired secret service crowded the halls! I even gave a book recommendation to Huma Abedin (apparently she’s quite the reader).
