Blog: As Intern at Scholastic, Luttmann ’15 Looks Forward to Crash Course in Publishing

June 12th, 2014 by 

NAME Melissa Luttmann ’15

HOMETOWN Memphis, Tenn.

AREAS OF STUDY Classics major

WHERE SHE’S INTERNING Scholastic Inc., which publishes and distributes children’s books and is a leader in educational technology and related services and children’s media. It is best known for its book fairs and clubs, and for publishing several major series, including “Harry Potter,” “The Hunger Games,” and “Clifford the Big Red Dog.” She’ll be working in the corporate communications division, which delivers information about Scholastic to broad audiences.

INTERNSHIP DURATION June 9-Aug. 22

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Children’s publishing really fascinates me, both as a writer and as someone who’s interested in a career in the field. I’m looking forward to exploring the publishing industry from a new perspective.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s ever wondered what it’s like to work in a publishing house, or to live for the summer in a city far from home. I’m trying to write the blog I would have wanted to read when I first started thinking about summer internships.”

CAREER GOAL “I’d like to work in either children’s publishing or education (as a teacher or admissions officer).”

ABOUT SIP Internships through the College’s Summer Internship Program are developed through the strong network of Holy Cross alumni, parents, and friends throughout the country and are earmarked and designed specifically for Holy Cross students. This year 165 students have internships at 120 sites offered through the program.
