Promise magazine

As an editor of Promise magazine from Spring 2013 to Spring 2015, I managed the following elements of the production process:

  • Developing a communications plan for each issue
  • Story concept development
  • Story assignment with publisher
  • Editing and reviewing all copy and visual elements
  • Writing features, front-of-the-book content, copy for photo captions & photo essays and copy for Q & As, contents pages and cover lines
  • Organizing and managing photo shoots; some photography and photo editing; sharing photos via social media networks (Facebook, Twitter)
  • Producing and filming short videos related to stories in issue; conducting interviews; writing interview questions (I initiated this process when I starting to work on the magazine in Jan. 2013)
  • Managing layout and graphic design elements
  • Fact checking
  • Updating all web content
  • Promoting the magazine via social media networks (Facebook, Twitter)
  • Expanded the content from a standard 16-page magazine to a 24-page magazine
