AUG/SEP 2016 – ’80s THROWBACK ISSUE
I brainstormed ideas for this issue by researching the ’80s and taking notes on topics that might be relevant to the magazine. Then I was assigned articles, which included ’80s trivia, the Money Talks article about “get-rich-quick” schemes, and the Trending Now 2-page spread. I was later asked to interview three young women for the Next Generation feature. I wrote the bio for one of these three. I’ve linked to the final magazine articles below (screenshots of the online mag), and in some cases, the original drafts (word docs).

WOMEN WHO MEAN BUSINESS NEWSLETTER – ARTICLE SUMMARIES
I was asked to research online to find 10 business-related articles that we might share in the WWMB newsletter. We then narrowed it down to three articles, and I wrote the short blurbs for the newsletter to “tease” the content of each link. My goal was to give just enough information – without giving anything away – so readers would be motivated to click on the links and read the articles.
