Today is a most joyous of days. As you read this-I am walking up to receive my diploma. Well–my mock diploma–the real one will come in the mail in like a month or so. Actually, I might already be on the train. Depends on when you read this. And I might not have walked ifContinue reading “Everything I did at Quirk”
I had to ask for this to be my last week at Quirk Books. Which is sad because I’m enjoying it and learning so much, but also very much needed with my thesis due in just a week and symposium fast approaching. My project has been hard to do since my advisor got sick andContinue reading “End of the Last Week”
Fifteen weeks? Seriously? I’ve been at this for…fifteen…weeks? Isn’t my semester only fifteen weeks long? Don’t mind me. Crying is productive.
It’s pizza day! And I brought lunch today. Because I like fried chicken and I’ve been making it like all week. Another crazy week filled with mailings and blog posts and giphy–oh my!
This week was very productive for me. I finished a huge mailing, finished a list of Bookstore-Cafes, posted blog posts (of course), filled up the Tumblr queue, starred in a 2 second SnapChat about what it’s like to intern at Quirk, came up with some Book Bento-esque ideas, organized the Marketing bookshelf, picked winners forContinue reading “End of Week #13”
Week #11 was Spring Break! So I was home getting ahead of all my school work. At this point in time I’m three weeks ahead of the syllabus for one class and waiting on group feedback for another class. I feel good about it. Before I left for Spring Break I cleaned up the inboxContinue reading “End of Week #12”
From Week #9: What a busy Monday. Lots of blog posts, images for Women’s History Month, thinking about Dr. Seuss’s birthday, jumping off points for blog posts for April, special excerpt posts, giveaways, pictures for Quirk Perks, and finally getting the signed movie posters all packaged up. Oh! And I applied to Abrams Children’s PublishingContinue reading “End of Week #10”
This week I catalogued the Twitter and Facebook bios of the big five and some smaller presses and imprints, uploaded blogs, as per usual, and thought up some ideas for women’s history month. One of the blogs I did images for was about Leonardo DiCaprio (the poor actor who never wins an Oscar) and which literaryContinue reading “End of Week #8”
This week started on Wednesday because of Presidents’ Day (which I asked about before hand so I didn’t actually come all the way into Philly when I didn’t have to). As always I drafted posts and made some images. Not as always: one of my favorite authors died. Harper Lee, author of To Kill a MockingbirdContinue reading “End of Week #7”
This week I made promotional images for the Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidential Playset… using the playset… it’s paper dolls. I played with paper dolls and it was my job. How cool is that? Mostly I looked for backdrops so that we could print them out, make a little photo studio, and put the paper presidentialContinue reading “End of Week #6”
