As an Editorial Intern at Fandom in San Francisco, CA, I wrote articles about fantastic video games and their impact on myself and gamers in general.
My other major responsibility was assisting the editorial team by reviewing article submissions from the Fan Contributor program and giving feedback to the writers for future revisions. After applying my final edits, I published the article through WordPress and analyzed its data using Parse.ly and Google Analytics.
I also assisted the community team by writing episode summaries, hyperlinking relevant articles, and proofreading user-generated content on popular anime wikis.
