For my internship I worked with an unpublished, amateur, local writer who wishes to publish her novel. I met her at the cafe where I work, and she told me about this novel and she needed someone to help her edit it to a publishable standard. I offered my skills and knowledge that I have learnt through the course, and she was very excited to have me on board. During the internship period I read through on hard copy, and addressed a few key points with her in meetings, then I began to edit the computer copy using the editing skills I'd learnt (track changes, style sheets, editing marks, cover letters, author-editor relationship etiquette). I am very happy to have had this experience, I have learnt a lot about myself and the industry, as well as had the chance to practice my skills and gain confidence in my work.
