Well readers, I think it's time for a life update. I'm officially living in New York City, attending New York University's Summer Publishing Program. I've been here less than a week, but this program is so intense, it feels much longer.
We're actually not allowed to blog, tweet or post about what the industry specialists that come to speak have to say, but to give you a general idea, we've already heard from Cindi Leive (Editor in Chief of Glamour), Kristin van Ogtrop (Editor in Chief of Real Simple), Larry Burstein (Publisher of New York Magazine) and James Bennet (Editor in Chief of The Atlantic) among other incredibly informative members of the media industry from companies like Rodale, Zinnio and the Precision Media Group.Yesterday I even got to tour the office of Marie Claire!
I'm learning so much, but it's all very overwhelming, and I haven't gotten to explore the city much at all. Hopefully there will be time for that this weekend! If anyone has suggestions for fun restaurants or low key tourist attractions, I'd love to hear them!
