Ed gets it. It’s February. It’s cold. That said, our first guest editor writes about health, fitness, sports, and beer. We think he’ll warm us up.
Matt Allyn is a Newhouse alum who started his career as an editorial intern at Men’s Health. Since then he’s written for a bunch of mags including Runner’s World, Best Life, and Esquire.com. Besides having a strong background in fitness writing, Allyn is a certified beer judge and author of a book about homebrewing. Check out the most recent beer slideshow he did for Runner’s World. This event will be packed full of insider advice and plenty of tips and tricks about the industry, in particular health and fitness writing. Make the trek over to Newhouse this Friday. Ed promises you won’t regret it.

P.S. For those of you who are interested in joining Ed but still haven’t paid your dues for the semester, just bring $10 to the event on Friday and you’ll be all set for the rest of the year.
Couldn’t make the happy hour last Monday? Even more reason to come to the event on Friday. Ed will be handing out packets of cover letter examples and corrections. And don’t forget former editorial assistant at Whole Living Magazine Diana Castaldini’s advice about cover letters and getting the first job.
