My name is Sarah Van Blaricum, and I've been writing most of my life, although it's mostly been as a hobby. Earlier this year, I decided to take my hobby and try to turn it into a career, so I'm looking for as much experience as possible. To give a bit of background on myself, I graduated from the University of South Florida in 2006 with a bachelor's in mass communications, concentrating in public relations. I currently work full-time as a media assistant at Mediagistic, an ad firm based out in Lutz, FL. I write on the side for my personal blog, onerandomb.com, and for Examiner.com, reviewing coffee shops in Tampa. I have done some freelance work in the past.
