Day 278: Be published in a print magazine
June 7, 2011 § 3 Comments
Reenactment of a conversation that took place yesterday between myself and my friend Molly (Note: These are not direct quotes):
Molly: Hey, I saw you were published in print. Congrats!
Me: Say what?
Molly: In this month’s issue of Community Health magazine…you didn’t see it?
Me: Girl, shut yo mouth.
Apparently they picked up one of my stories from last quarter, and a stack of the issue had been sitting unattended on a coffee table in the newsroom. So tonight I headed to the downtown newsroom a few minutes early, and imagine my excitement when I found this on page 23 of the May 2011 issue of Community Health:
My first print byline.
About a study that showed eating brightly colored vegetables can give your skin a healthy glow.
I love the sensual stock photography.
I’m definitely hanging this above my headboard for future inspiration.
