May Wrap-Up

Hello everyone, I knows it been ages since frequent blog posts but hopefully I am back now!! Yaaaaaaayyy. I have recently finished the teaching side to my MA in Publishing Media at Oxford Brookes and I am coming to the end of my one month stint in London working at publishing houses. I am so grateful to Biteback Publishing and Icon Books for taking me in and teaching me so much. If you have any questions about publishing/an MA in publishing or internships – drop me a message in the comments.

Exciting new things…

This week I am taking on extra responsibility and starting my placement at a publishing house (AHHHHHHH)  and I am starting  volunteering in a primary school with year fours.

Not only will I be a student and a part time employee BUT I will now be ‘Miss Waters’ and someone who is learning the publishing trade! How exciting is that?

People need to learn that anything is possible if you put your mind to it! That is why I am currently testing out different things, to see if it makes me realise what I want to do in the future.  I have always dreamt about going into publishing and I really hope that this placement reinforces it for me! AHHH BEING SURROUNDED BY THE WORLD OF BOOKS ALL DAY, EVERY DAY!!
