AWWNM's 2012 Summer Intern:
Q: What did you learn from your 2012 summer intern work at the American Women Writers National Museum, Washington, D.C.?
"I have discovered that women writers have affected every facet of the literary world, media, and general entertainment. I have always been fascinated by literature, and consider myself to be a proud feminist. But never did I stop to consider how much my everyday life is enriched by the work of these women.
Discovering that American women are responsible for my favorite television shows, news articles, and even nursery rhymes has given me a new found respect for not only their work, but for their legacy as well". (Written by Jaydee Pope)
