Kelsey Stoneberger, class of 2016, has been awarded a prestigious editorial internship with Tin House magazine. As an editorial intern, she will read and evaluate submissions, work on editing accepted publications, and assist with events hosted by the magazine. The highly acclaimed literary magazine has been publishing poetry, fiction, and non-fiction since 1998, with the book division opening in 2005. For Kelsey, who says “I think I’ve been reading since I could open my eyes” and who sharpened her critical skills while serving as an editor for Sans Merci, the internship with Tin House will help her continue to grow as a poet and a professional. Congratulations, Kelsey!
Cambridge University Press recently published a book by alumna and former Adjunct Instructor of English, L. Michelle Baker. The book, Writing in the Environmental Sciences: A Seven-Step Guide, grew out of Michelle’s work with the National Conservation Training Center and her own company, Conversation Writing Pro. Congratulations, Dr. Baker!
