WOODBURY – Dani Forte has joined the Just Woodbury team as its Editorial Intern for the Summer of 2018.
A rising junior at Nonnewaug High School, Forte is the Editor in Chief of Nonnewaug’s school newspaper, The Chief Advocate.
“I am excited to be interning at Just Woodbury and improving my craft as a journalist,” Forte said.
For Just Woodbury, Forte will help the editorial department with its calendar and news sections and help on special projects. Forte will also write and produce original editorial content for Just Woodbury.
“I am thrilled to have Dani Forte as our first-ever Editorial Intern,” said Just Woodbury Founder and Publisher Tim Parry. “She was very highly recommended by her journalism teacher at Nonnewaug, Marisa Holtman, and she’s very eager to learn as much as she can about journalism.”
Forte said she loves writing and plans to become a published author. She said she’s also always enjoyed reading, especially about fantastical things like dragons, witches, and wizards, particularly any with Harry Potter in them.
“This genre of books inspired my love for writing,” Forte said. There is just something exciting about being able to invent entirely new worlds and new people. My plan to be an author has not changed, but I have learned there is also a lot of fun in journalism.”
Forte is also a high honors student and takes pride in her work ethic and grades. Other than working hard at writing or school, Forte spends a lot of time playing soccer, both for the school and premier teams. She is also on the swim and track teams at Nonnewaug.
Forte can be reached by email at email@example.com or by phone at (860) 909-0254.
