About Taylor Ploeger

As an experienced writer I will be an asset to your news/media outlet.

My portfolio of news, human interest and features pieces exemplify my growth as a journalist and my ability to take criticism and apply it. I am a content creator and can form my own story ideas for both individual works as well as team written articles.

I have held multiple internships with print news publications: working as a reporting intern with Daily Local News and My Forsyth Magazine. I also held the position of Editor-In-Chief for The Voice, the Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania campus newspaper. I wrote for The Voice since I first arrived at Bloomsburg in August 2016 and have held various leadership positions including Managing Editor and Editor of Opinions and Editorial.

During my time with The Voice I won a Columbia Scholastic Press Association Gold Circle Award; first place for personal opinion: off campus issues. I currently have two articles submitted for this year’s competition and will find out if they win in November.

Through my internships and editor experience with The Voice I have become research savvy and often find I have become an expert in a wide array of topics. From the plight of humpback whales to the complex history of Catalonia I have produced stories full of vetted facts and have learned how to turn research into interesting narratives for readers to enjoy.

I studied abroad in Germany the summer between my sophomore and junior years. Since then I have been an International Peer Mentor for the university; helping students from all over the world make a home in Bloomsburg. I believe this has given me a global perspective that would be valuable for a position in the Mass Communications field.

I am a fast learner who thrives in an exciting and global workplace. While I believe I have the skills necessary to succeed in a news room I am always open to conversations about my professional development and how I can improve.

Please feel free to contact me if you believe I would fit well into your company.

Sincerely,

Taylor Ploeger
