A Message from Eric Corcoran, Our Fall Intern
What’s up everyone? My name is Eric Corcoran, I’m a senior at the University of Delaware studying English with a concentration in Professional Writing. A native New Yorker, I love all things New York, besides the Yankees (Lets Go Mets!) and our football teams. I grew up in a small suburb thirty minutes outside of New York City, which afforded me the opportunity to explore the city itself and the vast outdoors that New York has to offer.
I tend to get asked a few questions upon introducing myself as an English major, the most popular being “what are you going to do with that?” and “are you going to write a book or something?” And with my time as an undergrad student running out, I can confidently say I really don’t know. I’m probably not going to write a book, and I’m not quite sure where my English degree will land me, but being here at Oak Knoll is definitely a step in the right direction to finding out. Publishing is an industry that is often brought up in the courses I have taken at UD, so when I heard about the internship here I jumped at the opportunity to be part of the team. At Oak Knoll I hope to gain a better understanding of the publishing industry as a whole, as well as how to successfully market our products in order to generate sales. But most importantly I hope to learn as much as I can in my time as an intern.
