My internship at Sharp Magazine exceeded all of my expectations. The people were incredibly friendly, personable, and accommodating and the work environment was laid back and fun but I also felt challenged. I got to write a lot and even pitch my own ideas! I’m walking away with great memories, amazing contacts, and clippings I’m proud of!
My experience interning at Sharp magazine was very positive, being genuinely interested in the subject matter that I wrote about (menswear, style, design, lifestyle, etc.), I found that most of my suggestions for articles and blog posts were met with genuine interest from my editor, and turned into published work. Those pitches, as well as the assignments I was given, helped me flesh out my casual/laid-back voice for a magazine platform. I mostly used WordPress, which I’m now much more confident on. I have since been commissioned by Sharp to write freelance articles.
The team at Sharp was small, but very welcoming and patient with allowing me to learn about how to complete the day-to-day tasks, and with explaining to me how the business as a whole worked. This gave me valuable perspective on how magazines are run.
