I have been a Book Publicity Intern with Smith since May 2019. They have allowed me the chance to learn about the book Marketing world and expand my knowledge of the publishing industry. For Smith, I have drafted media pitches, press releases, and PR updates, and I have communicated directly with both publicists and clients. Most notably, I shadowed a campaign with Brandon Mull and Shadow Mountain for Mull's book Dragonwatch 3: Master of the Phantom Isle.
Global Treks and Adventures
PUBLICATION COMING JANUARY 2020.
I got the chance to be an intern with Global Treks during summer 2019. We traveled to Iceland for a week, hiking and exploring the southern region near Reykjavik and gathering information for a travel publication. I worked on the "Wildlife" section, doing research about each species and taking detailed notes about every animal we encountered, as well as writing detailed descriptions of each species in the trail guide. The book is set to be published in early 2020.
I ran a freelance publicity campaign for Michelle Jacqout's debut self published poetry collection Death of a Good Girl. I created media lists, pitches, and press releases for the book leading up to it's August 1, 2019 publication. The campaign primarily focused on Bookstagrammers and bloggers. Jacqout and her book will be featured on multiple Bookstagram accounts, including @books_with_bethany, who has 13.5k followers.
In Montclair's Office of International Engagement, I work as Study Abroad Peer Adviser (SAPA) Coordinator. The SAPAs are a group of study abroad alumni who dedicate their time to educating and advising prospective study abroad students. As the SAPA Coordinator, I communicate with all of the SAPAs, as well as prospective students, and students who are about to go abroad, or are currently abroad. I put together advertisements for the office, and write directions to assist both SAPAs and students who are learning to navigate our website or application process.
