Having grown up in East Bay, near Silicon Valley, Kim said it’s been exciting to be part of the nonprofit’s work this summer.
As a social media intern for LARB, one of Kim’s roles is to help promote its annual publishing workshop for underrepresented writers.
And she’s contributing her own writing to the LA Review and learning to copyedit.
I’m so happy that this internship allows me to explore everything, rather than sticking me into social media marketing and saying, ‘This is your life!'”
(Another perk: Because LARB extends deeply into LA culture, Kim has had some fun online brushes with celebrities.
