Work experience: Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, BBC South East Today, Oh Comely, Summersdale Publishers Ltd, Flame Tree Publishers. During the first term studying for my MA I was a regular radio presenter; Literary Hour with Kat Mills aired every Friday. I thoroughly enjoyed working to tight deadlines, broadcasting high quality content for my listeners. I relished the researching and communicating aspect required to secure various speakers. My guests included April Magazine's Editor-in-chief Youjin Lee, New Scientist's Acting Editor-in-Chief Graham Lawton, and Writer and Journalist Emma Woolf (great niece of Virginia Woolf). You can listen to some of the episodes here: https://www.mixcloud.com/kat-mills/ Part-time Editorial and Production staff at the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Previously employed by Summersdale Publishers Ltd. This award-winning publisher offered me a permanent position based on my efforts as an intern. I worked here part-time alongside my undergraduate studies. My main responsibilities were research for marketing and editorial purposes, drafting ideas for book proposals, and answering queries via email and over the phone. I have work experience with BBC South East Today; I shadowed various journalists. My duties included collating newspaper headlines and taking notes in preparation for broadcast, as well as involvement in the editing process for the evening news. I experienced a live broadcast in the studio gallery. My time here was invaluable, intensifying my passion for news broadcasting. In 2016 I was fortunate enough to be offered a place at Renmin University in Beijing. I was part of the International Summer School programme, studying Chinese Mandarin. In 2017 I participated in the SLV Global project in Sri Lanka for one month. I worked with children and adults on psychiatric wards, taught English, and facilitated workshops for people with mental health issues.
