I work in Condé Nast's Special Interest Publishing Group, which is a mouthful, but it basically means we create special issues across all of the Condé brands. I have worked on everything from Vanity Fair to mulit-branded to Glamour titles, with topics ranging from food to upcoming blockbusters and the Women's March. I have fact-checked, written copy, pitched successful special issue ideas (The World of Wands & Wizards and Superheroes Unleashed! were both mine) and everything in between. You can find out more about our department here.
I worked as a fact-checker and reporter for People StyleWatch on three special projects over the span of about nine months, including a book they produced and two bookazines. I wrote the below spread, which appeared in People StyleWatch's Get-Gorgeous Guide.

Eight Asbury students (myself included) had the opportunity the summer of 2012 to be the first journalism group from our school to report at the Olympics. We were in London for two weeks, reporting at the London Olympics for NBC affiliate LEX-18. Below are two news packages I helped produce. We won a Student Emmy for "London learns Southern phrases," which is featured below:
