I am writing here from my blog account I created last semester for my strategic communications course. In that course I did most of the crisp writing that would constitute as my experience in the communication field, as of yet. That said, I am currently taking a nonprofits writing course in which I am spending two hours a week at Columbus Shelter Board writing for their mass media communications and various emails and newsletters to donors and potential donors. This nonprofits course will provide me with the experience I need to say that I have experience in the communications field. Writing for CSB fits with my future goals to work for a nonprofit as a public relations specialist or fundraiser. Between the knowledge I will obtain through this internship, the internship I will do for my professional writing minor, and my strategic communications degree, I will be fully loaded to handle the responsibilities that pertain to working in public relations or fund-raising for a nonprofit.
In regards to maintaining this blog, it not only keeps me current with what professionals in the communication field are doing, but it keeps me writing. The more I write the easier it is to write…well.
