At the Austin American-Statesman, I focused on creating digital content for both the main website and the publication's separate website focused on music, food and recreation. My work included writing social media posts on a regular basis and contributing to larger projects, included SXSW coverage and a reader-generated content series.
Asking Questions through Hearken
One of the first things I did as an intern was help re-launch Austin Answered, a project soliciting questions from readers about local and community news. My articles answering the questions were regularly published online and in the paper's metro section.
Unofficial Party Guide
I was one of two contributors to the Statesman's largest unofficial party database for South by Southwest (SXSW), an annual music and film festival in Austin, TX. I filled the detailed database with more than 560 entries, which included detailed descriptions of the event, prices, location and times.
Reporting + Social Media
Along with writing social media posts and daily online-only articles for the Statesman's website, I also contributed to arts and culture coverage for Austin360 while working as an intern. All of my articles can be found here.
