Thanks to Our Interns

By Vic Tulli


The articles you can read in this newsletter, researched and written by the Rutgers English intern staff, are really just the tip of this semester’s iceberg. The interns discussed and debated the contents of the newsletter, researched and drafted articles we didn’t have space to print, interviewed alumni authors for our Alumni Book Corner, and collaborated to help each other edit and revise like no group before them. If you think, as I do, that the amount of Rutgers English news we’re able to bring you each semester is remarkable, you should see the rest of the work generated by these dedicated English majors. You’d be amazed.


My thanks goes to (pictured from left to right) Sarah David, Elizabeth Heisler, Monica Barr, Lauren N. Vitale, Rebecca Hu, and Jie He, for everything they accomplished and everything they taught me this semester.
