Welcoming Our Spring 2019 Intern!

Natalie Wollenzien is in her last semester of attending the University of Iowa for English and Creative Writing (and serving a long-distance relationship with her online classes). She is incredibly excited to be learning the in’s and out’s of the publishing world from manuscript to shelves, as well as what it’s like to work for an independent press. When not in the office, she enjoys loitering in coffee shops, brushing up on her Brooklyn 99 references, and petting as many dogs/cats as physically possible.

She's excited to join as part of the team!

Welcoming our Fall 2018 Intern!

Tova Kranz grew up in the Washington, D.C. area and in Orlando, Florida. She escaped Disney World and graduated from Florida State University and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with degrees in English. While excited to explore Louisville, she is most excited about the opportunity to learn more about publishing as an independent press. In her free time, she writes poems about the ocean, wanders around Louisville, and watches as many cat videos as possible.

She's excited to get started as a part of the team!

Sarabande Welcomes 2018 Summer Interns!

It's hard to believe that it's already the summer of 2018! A new season means a new set of interns, and new interns mean new intern bios:

Jacob B, our marketing intern, is a southerner in the north and a northerner in the south who looks forward to being able to walk over the Ohio River to cross from one to the other. He comes from a background in DIY publishing and is eager to learn the mechanics of professional publishing, especially in the context of independent non-profit presses.

Marcee, our editorial intern, is a native of Michigan. She comes to Sarabande from the Creative Writing MFA program at Western Kentucky University, where she is embarking on her second year. She looks forward to supplementing her knowledge of writing with experience in independent press publishing.

We're excited to be a part of the Sarabande team!
