Meet Our Spring Intern, Kiersten!

February 20, 2020 Leave a comment



Hi Everyone! My name is Kiersten Campbell and I am the newest intern to join the Oak Knoll Team! I am a current senior at the University of Delaware majoring in English with a minor in Advertising. During my time at UD I have had the opportunity to study a variety of literature topics, such as the depiction of women in literature ranging from Victorian women to Violent women, old British poems by John Donne, to even my favorite Harry Potter. I am from South Jersey, a small beach town called Ventnor City, where I love to spend my time with my family. When I am not powering through homework with my best friend and roommate, I enjoy watching romantic comedies, going out for a delicious bowl of pasta, and of course, Reading!

When considering my major in college and what I was going to do with my future, I always wished I could just read books for a living. Unfortunately, that job does not exist yet, so I went on to the next best thing, working with books! The publishing industry has been my goal since the start of college, so when I got an email from my school about an internship with Oak Knoll Books and Press, I knew it would be perfect for me. The moment I walked in and saw walls lined with shelves and shelves filled with books, I couldn’t imagine a better place to work. Add in the friendliest black lab and the rest of the Oak Knoll team, I fell in love. I am so excited to be working within these whimsical walls and to learn all about the publishing and book selling industry. I can’t wait to get started!
