    Prior to my time as a comparative literature at NYU, I had already developed an in-depth knowledge of literature of all types written in and translated into the English language. Soon after my arrival in Manhattan, I had started working part-time as an editorial intern with a small publishing house, DonnaInk Publications. As I copy & content edited both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts alike, some of which then went on to be electronic bestsellers within their respective genres on Amazon, the CEO of DonnaInk Publications realized my potential and hired me for the senior editor's position before I had graduated from NYU this past May. Due to the limited number of manuscripts, however, I was only required to work part-time. Currently, as I continue to concentrate on my own academic and non-fiction writing, I'm seeking a publishing house or literary agency in need of a full-time editor or editorial assistant with a Bachelor's degree, although I am always open and excited to do freelance editing of almost any kind or length.  less
