It’s a pleasure to write my debut post for The Sly Oyster. Here’s a quick rundown about me and how I landed this opportunity:
I am Sarah Noonan, a 23 year old living in the New York area working as an editor for trade publishing company Marine Money. I’m a lifelong fan of all things media and entertainment-related and these are my favorite topics to write about, which I do often on Twitter (@SarNoon), Tumblr (meticulouswhimsy), and my blog (mugforthought.blogspot.com).
It was only a matter of time before Jim and I discovered each others’ writing and developed the friendship all pop culture critics share. I came across Sly Oyster over a year ago while working as an online publicity intern for Oxford University Press and just starting my own blogs. As a new college graduate writing to everyone that could help me get my foot in the door in the media industry, I sought Jim’s advice about writing. Since then, I obtained my current job, where I have worked for the past eight months. In my free time, I have developed my personal blogs, with this guest blog opportunity being my biggest break to date! Thanks again Jim! Readers, I look forward to getting to know you!
