The Return of Taylor Long

Taylor Long at the Berlin Wall
Senior Taylor Long is back at The Ithacan this semester editing the 2013 edition of Year in Review after a summer in New York at Food & Wine magazine and a semester abroad in Prague.
She was at Food & Wine as an American Society of Magazine Editors intern, following in the footsteps of such ASME-intern alumni as Libby Sile ’11 (Reader’s Digest), Erin Geismar ’09 (Smart Money), Vanessa Schneider ’07 (InStyle), Elizabeth Quill ’06 (National Geographic), Michelle Theis Cuthrell ’04 (Smithsonian Magazine) and Kelli Grant ’04 (Smithsonian Air and Space Magazine).
“My internship with Food & Wine and the ASME internship program as a whole completely exceeded my expectations,” she said. “There were many lessons learned and friendships made last summer that I take with me as I prepare for graduation.”
As for her four months in the Czech Republic, “Because creative and political movements in Prague have often been closely linked, it was the perfect environment to experiment with fiction writing while continuing to develop political themes in my work.”
She’s writing for the paper again as well. Check out her latest story, an observational piece on rapper Talib Kweli’s visit to Ithaca College.
