Copy Editor

I worked as a copy editor for the Western Herald newspaper (Kalamazoo, MI) beginning in April 2009 until April 2011. 

While in this position I learned a lot about how a newspaper is produced from beginning to end. I learned to create pages for print using Adobe InDesign. I also polished my AP style skills by editing every article that was published during the time I was employed. At the end of my first year I was awarded the “AP Style Excellence” award by management. In addition to editing articles and designing the page layout, I was also responsible for uploading articles onto the Western Herald website as they were submitted.
