Editorial Placement

Viking Press

Apr 2015 - May 2015
  • Through my experience at Viking Press, I have accumulated a diverse collection of skills that are required to successfully work both independently and within a team in producing a publication. I attained significant experience working closely with the editorial team in the analysis of manuscripts submitted for approval, researching the rights and reproduction conditions of images scheduled for print, and correcting the grammar and syntax of submissions before their publication. Additionally, I also assisted with the promotion of Antony Beevor’s Ardennes 1944: Hitler’s Last Gamble - entrusted with cataloguing the esteemed guest list at the book launch, hosted by the Belgian Ambassador. Through this endeavour, I successfully supported the Portfolio team; Penguin's publicity subsidiary.

Bookseller

Waterstone’s

Nov 2014 - Jan 2015
  • Working as a bookseller at Waterstone's provided me with further knowledge of the publishing industry via visiting companies and industry fairs. Working at Waterstone's also lent me further customer service experience and a distinct knowledge of how best to market books to a specific audience. Through my recommendations of supplementary material, I also accumulated a categorical knowledge of literature beyond my personal preferences that I feel is practical in the consideration of quality and marketability when reading submissions.
