I am currently in class right now at NYU, learning about cover lines and targeting the right demographic for your reader. Cosmo writes about vibrators while Glamour rights about sweet sex. Yeah, okay. I get it... In the past week and a half, I have met so many amazing professionals, such as, Cindy Lieve (editor of Glamour), David Carr (President of Hearst), editors from Real Simple, Consumers Report, Bon Appetite, Time Out New York, Elle and HR people from Time, Randomhouse, Hearst, Sterling and so many more. I even got to tour Gawker (ahhhh!) and meet the editor of Jezebel, Jessica Coen, as well as the PR Manager, Kevin Prince. It was insanely cool.
Love living in NY, minus sharing half a closet! There is so much to see and do.
I'm in NY now for the summer (at least!) I got here on Sunday to start a publishing grad program. It is super intense and very competitive. I love living in NY so far. The subway is not as bad as I expected. In fact, I sorta like the idea of public transportation now. It seems relatively fast and convenient. I thought walking would be a pain in the ass but you can go pretty far, pretty fast. There is so much to do here and so many things to see. I have met a lot of people and am still taking it all in. I think it will be a great summer!
