Interning with Southern Pacific review
Submitted by Alana Gale - Kenyon College | July 01, 2016
As an English and Modern Languages major at Kenyon College, I found this internship very beneficial in building upon my journalism and Spanish skills. Walker Rowe is a knowledgeable journalist and is well-versed in Chilean news, so his expertise is valuable for those hoping to learn more about writing for newspapers and for those hoping for cultural immersion. Moreover, Mr. Rowe is a helpful editor--his criticism is as constructive as his positive feedback is rewarding. I learned a lot from this internship and would recommend it to anyone wanting to utilize their Spanish skills or expand their understanding of the newspaper and media communications field.
A Very Rewarding and Enriching
Submitted by María Josefa Ortiz Oberg - Universidad Diego Portales | August 18, 2015
I’m writing to share my experience working with the journalist Walker Rowe. My name is María Josefa Ortiz, I’m from Santiago, Chile, and I studied literature for 4 years in the Universidad Diego Portales. Prior to my job search, I worked directly with Walker for a period of two months on a project--a book about coastal pollution. The experience was very rewarding and enriching for both my career and for my writing skills, since I can now write with more technical language. Furthermore, in order to further investigate the issue of coastal pollution and bring new ideas to our book, we took a day trip to Ventanas-Puchuncaví (areas damaged by pollution) where we could share with the people affected by this act, those who had lost family members, spouses, etc. and feel close to what they were suffering every day.
Finally, I absolutely recommend the experience of working with Walker Rowe to any student who is looking to refine and strengthen their journalistic skills, besides having a good working environment and meeting a great guide with considerable experience in journalistic terms.
