My name is Libby Moeller, and I am a senior at the University of Missouri studying journalism. I will be graduating in May 2019 with a degree focus in magazine writing and editing. My strongest interest lies in science and environmental coverage. I am currently working as a digital editor in the culture section of Vox Magazine, Columbia’s monthly city magazine with a circulation of 10,000. As a digital editor, I write stories and help manage Vox’s social media, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Last semester, I worked as a print department editor for the city life section of Vox. In this role, I pitched stories, worked with writers, coordinated photoshoots, performed rigorous fact-checking and learned everything about being a print editor at a monthly magazine. During the rest of time at Mizzou, I’ve worked as an editorial intern at Rural Missouri Magazine, reported as an education beat writer for the Columbia Missourian, contributed articles to Vox Magazine and served on the photo team for The Maneater as a staff photographer and assistant photo editor. My most recent feature was an in-depth look at downtown Columbia’s oldest building, the Niedermeyer Apartments. You can read the Vox Magazine cover story here.
I spent my spring 2018 semester in Edinburgh, Scotland for an exchange trimester through Edinburgh Napier University. While at Napier, I continued my journalism studies with courses in literary journalism and website building.
In my spare time, I enjoy taking photographs, playing tennis, journaling and exploring Edinburgh’s coffee shops. I have a passion for films, and you can find most of my opinions on my Twitter. For a look at my travel excursions and photographic eye, you can check out my Instagram.
