Hi, I’m Ashley Flaws, current Drake University senior studying magazine media and English with aspirations to enter the magazine publishing industry upon my early graduation in December 2019. I have spent the last year at Meredith Corporation serving as an editorial apprentice for Allrecipes Magazine, the leading food media brand in the world, where I regularly write and edit content for an audience of 8 million readers. From story ideation to publication, I have worked with magazine content throughout every stage of production.
In May 2019, I started an additional position as an editorial intern for the Special Interest Media Partnerships team at Meredith Corporation, working with special-interest publications such as Happy Paws, Forks Over Knives, Eat This, Not That and Hungry Girl. Working with partnership clients to produce these more niche publications has helped round out my experience in the magazine publishing industry by giving me a full picture of everything the industry has to offer. Pair that with my previous internships performing communications work for the Iowa Automobile Dealers Association and digital media and content management work for Garden Gate Magazine, and I feel ready to tackle anything that comes my way. More than ready, I am excited for my future.
