Tionne Staples – Publishing Intern

Tionne Staples, publicity and editorial intern at NewSouth Books, is a student at Auburn University at Montgomery, where she is majoring in English and minoring in photography. When she isn’t mentoring fellow students on their writing or working at NewSouth Books, she is writing in one of her many unfinished stories or adding images to her digital photography portfolio. In the accompanying photograph, she is leaning against the jasmine-covered wall outside the entrance to NewSouth’s office and the Read Herring bookstore.
