online editorial intern / print editorial intern

The magazine Fashionista merged with website Fashionchick and became Fashionchick Girls halfway through my internship. So I wrote for Fashionista's website and Fashionchick Girls' print magazine while sitting behind the same desk. 

• Wrote for the website (now for 3 months. I wrote around 4 articles a day for teenage girls about fashion, life, love and beauty. The articles were short and often in the form of ‘listacles.’ 

• Wrote for the monthly magazine Fashionchick Girls for 3 months. For each issue I had my own sections in the magazine. I, for instance, interviewed ‘girlbosses,’ looked for the coolest hotspots in the country, interviewed girls with a connection to the issue’s theme of the month and wrote designer profiles.
