Welcome New Metalsmith Magazine Intern

Colleen TerrellPlease join SNAG in welcoming our new Metalsmith magazine intern, Colleen Terrell. Colleen is currently an M.A. student at the Bard Graduate Center in New York, NY. With a graduate degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Pennsylvania, for the last decade she has worked as a grant proposal writer for nonprofit organizations in Philadelphia. Now she’s making the jump to a different kind of writing: at the BGC, she’s building a foundation from which to write and report about craft. As an intern at Metalsmith magazine, Colleen is learning first-hand about what that kind of writing involves, while building her knowledge of the jewelry and metalsmithing fields. Metalsmith Vol 37 No 1frameDeep familiarity with Metalsmith also will help her frame her master’s research at the BGC on the role that professional publications played in supporting the post-war studio craft movement. Colleen’s parents are metalsmiths, so in some ways, her internship with Metalsmith is also a return to familiar territory; the magazine has been regular reading in her family’s home for decades. For Colleen, though, words are the chosen medium, and she looks forward to forging her own path, finding and sharing stories about objects and their makers.
