Carlyn Hill is the Writer and Content Manager at Threadless.com, an online apparel company that prints designs which are submitted and voted on by their artist community. In this role, Carlyn manages the site’s blog contributors and writes original and branded content. She also writes for HelloGiggles,The Mary Sue, andBlack Girl Nerds. There’s no doubt Carlyn is an accomplished writer, but she didn’t plan on a writing career, she initially graduated Indiana University with a B.A in Psychology and minor in Telecommunications, because she was torn between a career in psychology or television. As she likes to put it, she's currently using her Psych degree as a coffee coaster. Carlyn has been a panelist for our live events at C2E2, Wizard World Chicago, and Indy PopCon. When she’s not writing, you can find her doing freelance illustration, praising the Oxford comma, or spending time with her boyfriend, Netflix.
In this episode, Carlyn discusses with our hosts Blaire Knight-Graves and Mark Beers the joys of having a geeky career at a geeky place. However, she also had to learn a few lessons along the way. Despite some hiccups, the way she sees it: the journey was just as educational as the destination.
