Hey! I've moved! I'm now at annekopas.com, and what you're seeing on this page may be out of date.
I’m Anne, a third-year student at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. I am working toward a BA in English with a writing emphasis, and a BA in Communications & Journalism. I am also pursuing a minor in Psychology. After graduation, my goal is to start a career in the field of editing and publishing. Books and writing are my passion, and I look forward to working with them as much as possible throughout my studies and career. I am especially interested in young adult and children’s literature, and I plan to someday be on one end of this publishing process, either as a writer or an editor (or both).
I believe that stories are the most fundamental form of human communication, and I like to be involved in every stage of creating these stories. From writing, to editing, to helping the right stories reach the right people--I'll do it all.
While I have a passionate interest in book publishing, I've worked to tell many kinds of stories across various platforms, including blogging, social media, a student news website, and more. I've also worked as a writing tutor to help others share their message. I have training and experience in:
- copyediting and proofreading
- social media
- creative writing
- web design (HTML and CSS)
- and more
I've worked at Redleaf Press, a small publishing company specializing in early childhood education. I'm the web manager for TommieMedia, an award-winning student news site. I've served as a Communications and Journalism writing tutor, where I help students with all stages of the writing process, including brainstorming, planning, drafting, and revising.I have been blogging about books, writing, and related topics at The Epic, the Awesome, and the Random since January 2011, which has given me insight into the publishing world and whetted my appetite to learn more. My creative work has been published in the Summit Avenue Review and in the sidewalks of Northfield, MN, as part of the Northfield Sidewalk Poetry Competition. In my spare time, I also write poetry and fiction (including two full-length unpublished novels).
I'm currently seeking internship opportunities. If I can help you tell your story, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
