Viva Las Interns!

A few times a year, we’re able to have interns in the office. Unlike some companies, we take our internship program very seriously. We never take on interns unless we have real projects to set them loose on and time to provide real instruction.

This summer, we were lucky enough to have three stellar interns.

In Editorial, we had Lucy, a graduate of the Denver Publishing Institute. (If you want to start a career in publishing but don’t know where to begin, DPI is a fantastic place to learn all about the industry. Many of us at Fulcrum are institute grads.) She shows great promise as a developmental/substantive editor, and she even helped us out with a number of catchy titles for our forthcoming books. (Lucy also has a connection to Cake Crumbs and The Denver Cupcake Truck, so we scored some great treats over the summer—their lemon cupcake is to die for!.)

Mmmm, cupcakes.

Our other editorial intern, Moon, came all the way from the West Coast to join our team for the summer. Moon really took advantage of her time with us, taking home many projects and immersing herself in the experience. She’s well on her way to being a great copy editor!

In the Marketing Department, Sosi did a super job contributing to our social media presence, helping at a trade show, completing database projects, and finishing up mailouts, among other things. She had a positive attitude about being an intern and used this summer to find out as much as she could about all the roles and departments in a publishing company—if you want to be a great intern, be curious like Sosi. We hope to see her in the future, if she’s not coaching swim team!

Yesterday was the interns’ last day, and the office already feels empty without them.

Good luck, guys! We’re so excited to see where the future takes you.
