I spent some time working on the Wild Violet redesign this weekend, as well as catching up on a backlog of e-mail related to Otakon Press Relations. I got caught up on Otakon correspondence, and I got a rough HTML version of the new Wild Violet home page done so that The Gryphon can start working his magic.

In other Wild Violet news, I've been approached by a New York University student who is interested in being an intern for the summer. While I warned her that we're a small organization, and I work out of my home office, I told her that she could do work for me off-site. I told her that I'd be happy to show her my process and let her write some things for the magazine, as well. She's going to run the idea by her adviser and see what sort of a response she gets.

Even though Wild Violet is a legitimate magazine that has won acclaim from writers and other editors, the concept of having my own intern reminds me of the episode of Seinfeld called "The Voice," where Kramer manages to get himself an intern to work on his new start-up company, Kramerica. Really, the intern spends most of the show taking care of Kramer's personal business. I would, of course, use my intern more responsibly, should the university approve, but it's a somewhat amusing concept, nonetheless.
