Work Experience | Velvet Magazine

I've not really written about anything like this on the blog before, but I enjoyed it so much I really wanted to document it so I can look back on it in years to come! In the middle of June, I was fortunate enough to get myself a week of work experience with the editorial team of Velvet Magazine, the best local magazine in my area (it covers Newmarket, Saffron Walden, Cambridge, Ely and Bury St Edmunds). I was so excited to start!

Throughout the week, I learnt so much about writing editorials and researching, and I am so proud to be able to say that some of the things I contributed to have appeared online as well as having some bits in an issue of their magazine. It's been really eye-opening and I loved every second of my work experience.

Whilst I was there I learnt alot more about writing editorials. I was even able to write a press release which is something I've never done before. Going through the magazine before the issue was finished to edit it was pretty cool as well - I felt so professional. I loved the fact that I was enjoying the things I was writing about, and although there was pressure to get things written up in time for them to be published, I wasn't really stressed. I was enjoying what I was doing so much that I took it all in my stride. It was such an incredible feeling knowing my work would be included online, and that I had contributed to the making of the July issue as well. I really enjoyed myself.

I had the most fantastic week - getting involved in writing, a bit of yoga and some database work too! I learnt alot skillswise as well which I am hoping will help with my blogging too.

Have you ever had a great work experience?
