As a regular contributor to the TheLoop.ca’s Love and Relationship section (formerly Sympatico) I created timely articles, slideshows and quizzes (including visuals), sourced experts to interview and pitched entertaining and informative ideas from November 2012 to present. Below is a sampling of some of my favourite pieces.
As Online Editor for SalonMagazine.ca, a trade publication for beauty professionals, I create content plans, write and edit articles, coordinate with the print editorial team for stories, and create a weekly newsletter. I also manage several social media accounts for the magazine and report on web traffic stats. Below are links to a sampling of my articles.
As the Online Editor for Elevatemagazine.com, I had to manage a team of freelancer writers, write, edit and post all content on the website, plan an editorial schedule and create bi-monthly newsletters. I also managed all social media accounts, reported on website traffic stats and helped with client proposals and e-blast materials. Below is a sampling of anti-aging, beauty, enhancement, health and wellness stories written exclusively for the website.
As a Fashion Editorial Intern at RealStyleNetwork.com between June to August 2011, I wrote daily beauty, health and fashion content based on current trends and news and designed graphics for articles and featured content slider images.
I also had the opportunity to create all of the layouts for a 42 page online magazine, while communicating revisions with a team of editors. I also kept production on track by sourcing images and submitting spreads in a timely fashion. Below are some of the layouts from the Fall 2011 issue!
While completing my Book and Magazine Publishing Post Graduate Diploma and Centennial College (Sept. 2010 – April 2012), I took on the role of Online Editor-in-Chief for OnTheDanforth.ca, which is part of a class project that produces two magazines each year. I redesigned the website, set up a weekly publishing schedule for a team of editors and writers, and introduced social media promotions and new advertising opportunities, which helped to nearly triple traffic to the website.
As an Assistant Editor at TalentEgg.ca, a career portal for students and recent graduates, I had the opportunity to pitch and write stories for a Gen-Y audience. This was a virtual internship where I was required to edit the work of my peers on a weekly basis and contribute the website’s comments and forum.
Below is a sampling of stories published between May to December of 2010.
