Meet the PDA Letter’s First Intern

by Aneeta Mathur-Ashton, American University


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.
