Meet One of Our Spring Interns: Rahsel

DSC_0106Hello, hello, my name is Rahsel. I am a Delaware native from the Rehoboth Beach area, but going to school in the northern part of the state and interning in New Castle with Oak Knoll has given me a greater sense of what it is to be a Delawarean.  I am an English and public policy major at the University of Delaware and this spring marks the end of my junior year. I am more of an English major because I have a deep love for writing and I aspire to work in editing and publishing, but I also have a passion for community development; therefore working for the state of Delaware to research information for policies would also be a great option. I definitely hope to publish a few books somewhere along the way of my journey to success.

 

Oak Knoll is very cool in that they publish books about books because the history of the book is so rich. I took a class that tried to explain some parts, and there are so many elements from the making of the paper to the choosing of fonts to the printing process. It’s all very interesting. I also like working with digital design. Another class that I took called document design explained the conventions of different documents. Of course with digital design the visual layout is important, but every piece of writing has a particular layout that it follows to keep viewers interested. Here at Oak Knoll, I am lucky to have the opportunity to work with graphic design and to admire the unique qualities of different texts.

When I am not writing or admiring the history of the book, I am binge watching movies from other eras, or watching series on Netflix. I think my time at Oak Knoll will be very valuable, and I hope to learn more about the duties of a publishing firm.
