Graduate Program: Creative Writing (M.Litt.)
nearly all jobs in this city, I found out about it by networking. A
friend of a friend recommended me, and I'm so grateful she did!
first heard of the position and read the posted job description, I was
actually surprised Scholastic was interested. However, I believe I had
three interviews, and in each one I was assured that the position was
mainly a writing job. This appealed to me because I was looking to get
into a writing job. This position combined writing with my curriculum
and lesson planning background, which has proven to be a fun
incredible thing about my job is that I'm adding value. My proposals are
all presented to clients, and if the projects are bought, my ideas will
appear in classrooms nationwide. I love that I can be creative, and then
cinch up my ideas with tight writing skills into a marketable idea.
terrible as I am at it, networking is invaluable. My husband and I moved
to NYC from Scotland, and I knew no one in education here well. It took
me months before anyone would read my resume, it seemed.
