I interned at Milkweed Editions (Minneapolis, MN) for six months in 2018. Working in a small publishing house like Milkweed gave me a comprehensive picture of the book publishing industry in nearly all departments, from acquisition, to editorial, to design, to publicity. The team at Milkweed had no reservations about letting me get in on the process. Here are a few materials I designed for promotional purposes during my time there.
Some of Milkweed's flyers and order forms needed a facelift for AWP.
I designed a poster for the Ballard Spahr Prize for Poetry (formerly Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry) and updated the catalog with current titles for AWP.
I made a tour graphic for Elizabeth Rush's book tour, which, to my great satisfaction, she used across her social media to promote it.
