LAUREL DAMMANN: EDITORIAL INTERN

(07/12-05/13)

Laurel Dammann’s internal catchphrase is “question everything.” Perhaps inevitably, that mantra led her down a path of investigative journalism and into her internship at Public Herald. A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, she concentrated in Journalism, Film, and French and has a particular passion for interview, documentary, and the editing processes of both writing and film. She has published work at MovieMaker Magazine, Print Magazine, and Art Business News. Laurel was forever marked by encounters with performance artist Penny Arcade and Sarah Lawrence College professor and former The New Yorker editor, Alice Truax.
