Adelphi Student Success Story
Recent Grad Climbs the Ladder to Publishing Stardom
Adelphi creates career success. Just three years after graduating from Adelphi, creative writing major  Janine Perez '14  is well on her way to a thriving publishing career. Perez was recently named a  Publishers Weekly  Star Watch 2017 honoree , thanks to her excellent work as an associate digital marketing manager at Simon & Schuster, Inc., in New York City. She is the force behind Simon & Schuster's presence at teen festivals like Yallwest, Yallfest and BookCon, and has transformed Riveted , the publisher's online young adult (YA) community, into a popular hub for YA fiction. Perez credits Adelphi professor Peter West, Ph.D. , associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, for helping her land the very first stepping-stone: a summer internship at HarperCollins Publishers in 2013.
