Hi! I’m Miriam Cone, the new marketing intern at TU Press.
If we’ve ever talked before, you probably know that I love reading and writing, so it’s a dream come true to be interning at a press. I’ve wanted to go into publishing since high school (in middle school I was determined to be a vet), but my love of books began long before then. My parents are avid readers, and I picked up the reading bug early on. I was the kid who brought books to school to read in case I finished a test early. When my family went on roadtrips, I’d bring at least three books and finish them before the trip was over.
I don’t read for fun as much as I used to, mainly because I’m a rising junior English major and a creative writing minor. I’m pretty much reading all of the time for my classes. This summer I’m hoping to find more time to read and do some creative projects, when I’m not working at the press, that is.
I also love to cross-stitch, cook and bake, watch cat videos, volunteer with my brothers in Alpha Phi Omega, and add energy to Trinity University’s already dynamic Orientation Team. Last semester I was a co-editor for the Trinity Review, Trinity’s student-run literary magazine, and I joined Trinity Distinguished Representatives to volunteer through the Office of Admissions.
I’m super excited to be part of the team at TU Press. It will be a wonderful experience and a great opportunity to learn more about publishing.
