I am a multilingual writer, editor, translator and poet with experience at renowned magazines such as Harper's and Prospect, and am currently blog editor at Asymptote Journal.
I curate Asymptote's daily blog, which involves commissioning pieces about translation, organising the blog schedule on various digital platforms, and editing and proofreading each piece to conform to our style guide, as well as writing my own reviews and articles.
During my two week internship at Prospect, I copyedited, proofread and fact-checked pieces for the upcoming issue and coordinated with editors to make sure that the copy in the print layout matched the original content plans.
As an editorial assistant, I was tasked with researching content for the "Readings" section of the magazine, rigorously fact-checking the Harper's "Index", proofreading each issue before going to print, and contributing to editorial meetings regarding writers' pitches. I gained crucial career advice from respected editors and have also maintained a good relationship with the magazine over the past year by doing freelance research and publishing translations in their issues. I have also made fact-checking an integral part of my editing process.
During my time with The Brooklyn Quarterly, I wrote a feature for one issue, wrote weekly updates for the blog, and was put in charge of submissions.
With scholarship funding, I was able to pursue my passion for writing poetry by studying with some of the most well-known contemporary poets. I was given the time and the space that I needed to dedicate my energy to writing and to share ideas about poetry with my tutors and peers. I also became fluent in writing academically about poetry, writing mostly about experimental and documentary poetry, as well as its relation to photography.
