As the managing editor of this group produced publication, I:


• Worked closely with each writer and editor to make sure their stories were ready to be published by the end of the semester on a WordPress website
• Responded productively to editing feedback from team members, writers and the professor
• Edited to follow the standards of editing for clarity, conciseness and correctness and with an eye for evaluating scene-setting, structure, transitions ledes and endings
• Edited quotes by trimming and paraphrasing; fact-checked thoroughly; took initiative, met deadlines, supported team members and collaborated effectively


*Graphic designers also had the chance to turn this into a print publication, where the stories were adapted to not only fit a website but a magazine-style layout
