I'm a passionate and hard-working graduate looking for a job in either editorial, writing or curating. I've always been a lover of writing, history & archaeology, and am looking to hone these loves throughout my career.
I was a runner/intern at Lionsgate for the duration of one week. Although not a long internship, the time at this company was invaluable and I learnt a lot about the film industry, pre and post-production. For this role, I did not only run about like a headless chicken distributing post. I was also able to read through reviews and proofs of scripts, helping and growing my writing and editorial eye.
I was the Marketing and Publicity intern at Bloomsbury publishing for the timeframe of one month. This greatly enhanced my knowledge of the publishing world as I was able to communicate with all departments, and see how the publishing world ticks in the bigger companies. I sent out hundreds of press releases and proofs, as well as helping to organise a book launch which was an amazing experience, allowing me to see all the processes of the birth of a book.
Sweet and Maxwell, a legal publishing branch of Thomson Reuters, really helped sharpen my editorial skills. For this role, I copy-edited many legal books, making sure authors had made the improvements their editors had suggested. This is an important part of the editorial processes, and has really helped improve my editorial skill. Furthermore, I was also able to copy-edit an entire academic book, a job rarely giving to interns.
From production to digital, all stones of the publishing industry were uncovered, and every module completed has lead the way to a varied knowledge of publishing, both book and magazine.
