Hello! My name is Brittany Beckmann—avid coffee drinker, reader, and writer. I will be interning with Stoneboat over the next several months. I graduated from Lakeland in May of 2015, earning a degree in both creative writing and vocal performance. Like so many who frequent this blog or follow Stoneboat, I also have a passion for writing—mostly nonfiction—and reading. During my undergrad, I had the opportunity to intern with Seems under the direction of Karl Elder and am looking forward to working alongside editors and publishers once again. In my free time, you can find me singing with the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus, tutoring at the Mead Public Library, or playing piano for a church somewhere out in the boonies. I’m excited to work with Stoneboat and to learn more about the inner-workings of literary journals.
