MA-Spokane Historical Editor
During my time as a graduate student in addition to my duties in the Washington State Archives, I also was an editor for the Spokane Historical website and app. I edited and helped to publish 20 previously unfinished stories or stories that just weren’t quite ready to be made public. In addition, I transferred regional history stories from the now mostly defunct Ice Age Floods Explorer.
When the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture was creating their American Inheritance: Unpacking World War Two Exhibit students in the Nearby History course at EWU researched and wrote new stories for Spokane Historical relating to the exhibition. Once the exhibition was open to the public I curated a new tour in Spokane historical featuring these stories, older stories relating to the topic, and a few stories I wrote specifically for the tour as a digital companion for the exhibit. The Spokane in World War 2 Tour.
Writing, researching, and editing these stories helped to improve my own writing skills and helped to create a strong understanding of the curatescape platform.
