Our #whatdoido of the day is Laurel Samuelson. She is the Managing Editor, which is part of the administrative staff at the Syrinx. While the EIC makes the big decisions, it is her job to carry them out and to take care of the details. This means managing the email account, taking notes during meetings, periodically checking in with section editors, providing some guidance for writers, contacting the printers and keeping the EIC fed during layout. It is also occasionally Laurel's job to be creative on demand, which is both flattering and terrifying.
