I was the Production Intern at Ploughshares for Fall of 2015, September to December. By working with the Marketing Assistant, I had the opportunity to design marketing material that featured on the Ploughshares site, email newsletter, and in print. I also had the opportunity to design the covers for their print issues, copyedit and typeset the interior text in collaboration with the Production Manager.

Published in January, April and July in quality paperback, each issue is guest-edited by a prominent writer who explores personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.
