Hello, my name is Aneeta Mathur-Ashton and I served as the Publishing Intern
for PDA during the summer of 2018.
In this role, I assisted Managing Editor Rebecca Stauffer in putting together
the July/August issue of the PDA Letter.
For the most part, I spent my time copy
editing articles sent from authors around
the world. I also got a chance to see how
a magazine is put together by sitting in on
various planning meetings, and I watched
how they created a comprehensive “map”
of an issue, outlining articles slated to appear. This map hangs in Rebecca’s office.
