Lene Adolfsen Took Work Experience with us in 2012
“The undergraduate program at my University, Northeastern University, encourages students to take a couple of semesters off to gain some work experience before they graduate. I decided to take this time to travel to Bristol and explore a side of writing that I hadn’t learned about at school.Writing for Strategy has been wonderfully challenging and I believe it has made me a better-rounded writer. As an English Literature major I have plenty of writing experience, but none like this. Blogging is so completely different from academic writing that it takes some getting used to, but with the way the internet is totally changing the publishing industry, you could argue that it’s the future of writing.
When you’re blogging you really have to draw the reader in, they aren’t required to read your writing like your professors or your peer-editors are. You can’t rely on the novels or poems you analyse in school to give you interesting ideas and subject matter, you’re not simply looking for a way to write about an already great piece of writing—you have to be the one to think outside of the box and come up with your own topic that is interesting, creative and will convince people to read it.
I believe that everything I’ve learned while at Strategy about writing for the web and all the intricacies of the internet that I’d never known before, will help give me a leg up as I pursue a writing career in the future. It has opened up doors for me that I didn’t know existed.”
