How Peer Support Makes Internet Writing Career More Fulfilling - Mark Graham

In Chapter 12 of 19 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, editor and writer Mark Graham details how peer Internet writer support has helped him develop professionally. Peer support provides Graham initial confidence to leave a marketing job at General Motors for a blogging role at VH1. Over time, the online writing and blogging community provides the encouragement, counsel, and feedback to help Graham improve and develop as a writer and, now, an editor. Graham is currently a senior editor at MTV Networks. Previously he worked in editing and writing roles at New York Magazine and Gawker Media. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in English.
