“I’ve had experience with magazine publication on my college campus, but being privy to the workings of a new publication with a high readers’ base was invaluable to me. I really enjoyed having the freedom to be creative with my pitch ideas, with coordinating sources, even with my captions for Facebook posts. I always want to learn more about everything there is to be learned, so being able to pick up new skills (such as Photoshop and Mailchimp) was really appreciated. It was such a wide array of experiences, I was never bored; no one day was alike. On top of that, I was able to forge connections with some really down-to-earth, amazing women, which was just awesome in itself alone. Everyone in the office is super friendly and dedicated to their work, and it was great getting to work in tandem with them. 10/10 would recommend to aspiring interns!”
– Maddie Liotta, Sass Summer 2017 intern
“I had not worked for any sort of publication of this type before coming to work for SASS. My experiences were primarily working in the sports information business where Information has to be turned around quickly and accurately with little time for creative input or artistic flavor. Working for SASS has given me a new appreciation for the more personal and innovative approach to journalism and to publications of this type; publications whose sole purpose is to invigorate and stimulate the creative, artistic and personal attributes of our readers. SASS provided me with the opportunity to broaden my journalistic knowledge and to expand my vision of how publications like SASS can create excitement and a “rebirth of self” in their readers.”
