University of Plymouth
I am studying for a Master of Arts degree in Publishing at the University of Plymouth. In 2019 I graduated from the University of Kent, Canterbury, with a 2.1 in English and American Literature with a Year in Computing. I am a motivated, responsible and enthusiastic postgraduate student, who shows initiative and aims for a high professional standard. I have demonstrated this throughout my MA projects. I am interested in editorial or design work and I have previous experience of working on live publishing projects. In particular, I am interested in magazine and fiction publishing.
3-month internship as Editorial Assistant with Untold Publishing Ltd: working with both their Impress Books imprint and their Aelurus imprint; researching independent bookshops that could benefit from Untold Publishing Ltd's support and working on acquisitions through reviewing manuscripts. 1-month work experience as Editorial Assistant and Marketing Collaborator with the University of Plymouth Press (UPP): creating an advance information sheet using InDesign and conducting research into the market for the title featured in the advance information sheet. I also have experience as a Duty Supervisor at the Kent Union Student Union Shop at the University of Kent, Canterbury.
