I have to say, I’m pretty proud of this mention in the recent newsletter for my Fashion Journalism Course with Cleland Thom:
Fashion journalism student Stefanie Haigh has been busy…
- Her fashion blog is going from strength to strength: http://stefaniegraceblog.blogspot.com She attracts readers using Twitter, Facebook and Blogcatalog mainly, as well as commenting on other peoples´ blogs.
- She also wrote a couple of articles for her student newspaper The Sanctuary (Birmingham edition) and has recently been promoted to fashion editor. She is also a regular contributor for Amazona Style – a blog for tall women.
- She also writes for the fashion section of Beanzine for Student Beans and has secured a work experience placement at The Daily Express´ fashion desk for July, with the option of extending it.
Wow, I’ve come a long way and I’ve written a LOT of blogs! But, I have to say that I am absolutely loving it all! Last April I decided that Fashion Journalism was definitely for me. I had often considered it, but often thought that maybe it was just every little girl’s dream and told myself to come up with a better plan! But then I found a course online with CTJT and decided to go for it! I paid for the course on the day that I handed in all of my Year Abroad work. I was so excited that I even finished and submitted the first module on the first day! I started my blog last April and couldn’t imagine what it would be like with archives; pages and pages of things that I had written!! Since then, I have started writing for my student newspaper The Sanctuary (and have recently been offered the editor’s position!), I also write for amazonastyle.com and studentbeans.com. I also have a greater understanding of the world of fashion journalism and an internship lined up for July with The Daily Express Fashion Desk. All in all, I an thoroughly enjoying all of it and just can’t wait to graduate so that I can do this full time!
I have a couple of thank you’s to throw out at the bottom here: Amazona, Student Beans and The Sanctuary Bham for giving me a platform. The Daily Express for thinking that I’m good enough! My best friend Chris for putting me up on his sofa next summer and also for his knowledge of London transport, which will no doubt come in handy! My parents for actually taking me seriously on this! And finally, my boyfriend Mark for having to listen to me go on about Vogue and shoes for hours on end and not complaining about it… much!!
