The Critical Writing Program is pleased to announce its two editorial interns for the spring 2006 semester.

  • Stephanie R. Bachula is a sophomore English major with an emphasis in Creative Writing. A northern Virginia native, Stephanie has been involved with the theater community since arriving at Penn, working as an assistant set designer and public relations liaison with the Front Row Theater Company, as well as starring in their production of Diana Sons Stop Kiss. Last year, she was an associate editor with the Pennsylvania Punch Bowl, and she has worked as a summer assistant with the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts.

  • Lauren B. Newman is a junior English major from Wayne, New Jersey. Lauren's involvements at Penn include the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project and the student publication, The F-Word: A Collection of Feminist Voices, of which she is a founding editor. Two years ago, Lauren was a summer intern with the corporate editorial department of the Conde Nast Publications Group. Her essay, "How Otherness Impacted the Vietnam Veterans Memorial," was published in the inaugural issue of 3808: A Journal of Freshman Writing.

    As Critical Writing interns, Stephanie and Lauren will be working on the spring 2006 issue of 3808:Journal of Freshman Writing, as well as managing and monitoring the Penn ArtBlog. They will be tracking manuscripts and overseeing the review process for student submissions, as well as assisting in the editing, layout, and proofreading of the journal and the blog. They will also provide assistance to the Penn Writing Fellows in the planning and publication of the first themed issue of RES: The Journal of Undergraduate Research, which is slated to focus on "Digital Culture."
