As this is my first blog post, I would like to explain what this website is all about. My name’s Kirsten Hudson and I’m a soon-to-be graduate in journalism from the University of Kansas. I’m interested in an editorial career in magazines.
I have worked as an editorial intern for two magazines: Natural Home, a green lifestyle magazine, and The Herb Companion, a magazine about growing, cooking and healing with herbs. I’ve also worked as a staff writer on the health beat for Jayplay, the University’s student-run lifestyle magazine, and as a copy editor, correspondent and blogger for The University Daily Kansan, the University’s student-run daily newspaper.
This website displays clips of my work with these publications. I have a lot of experience with web content. During my internships I wrote blog posts, online news briefs, online product reviews and e-newsletters. With Natural Home, I was in charge of updating the magazine’s MySpace page. I also uploaded text and photos to the Web using a content management system and updated archived Web articles for search engine optimization during my internships. Please visit the My Work and Résumé pages for more information about my work.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Thanks for reading!
