Academic Project: Spoon Magazine

In a program sponsored by Meredith Corporation, we developed a prototype launch publication that fits into an assigned Meredith business plan. Our project, Spoon Magazine, was a hybrid between Meredith's foodie social networking site and a quarterly print publication. Our demographic: young, affluent college graduates, both male and female. The group is responsible for all aspects of production including developing an editorial/sales plan and utilizing new technologies in a marketing capacity. We focused on the unique marketing possibilities for this age group and using Facebook, Twitter, live events and bundling with existing publications, we created a entry point for the youth market to enter the Meredith brand family.

Editorial Intern

As an editorial intern, my duties consisted mostly of research and synthesizing information for the use of editors above me. I was focused mainly on the relationship advice section of the magazine and interviewed many psychologists and sociologists for articles that either my editors or I wrote. I also worked in other aspects of production, analyzing data from reader surveys and conducting my own research and interviews for various pieces throughout the magazine.
