Intern Spotlight: Toni Guest

Toni GuestHi, my name is Toni Marie Guest. I am a senior graduating in May with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Writing and Publication and a minor in History. I became interested in interning with the University Press after taking the course Introduction to Publishing where I developed an understanding for publishing and realized that this was exactly what I wanted to do. With the encouragement of Dr. Robinson (Director of the University Press) I found out that I enjoyed the field of marketing and have decided to pursue this as my career. Marketing has allowed me to express my creativity and I thoroughly enjoy it. While interning for the Press I will continue to focus on the marketing aspect and gain a better understanding for what this field involves. After graduation I plan on obtaining a marketing position at a publishing company, preferably in Georgia or a surrounding state.  I love books and believe that a good piece of literature can change someone, and to be a part of publishing a book that could affect someone is why I want to do this; I can think of no greater reward. Books are my passion; I enjoy reading all genres of books, especially the classics, and writing my own fictional stories. I am also a member of Sigma Tau Delta and Delta Zeta.
