As an editorial assistant, I had my own projects to manage, including two novelty books for 6 and 7 years-old children, as well as republishing older books, both illustrated books and novels. I worked closely with both the design and the production team. My tasks also included working on international rights, reading committees and check on the ePub versions of our YA novels. This year allowed me to develop many skills, both industry-specifc and administrative skills such as simultaneously managing various projects, for which I needed to adapt quickly to the company’s organisation, as well as communication skills, as I needed to be in contact with authors and illustrators, designers and the production team.
I assisted the editors in their day-to-day life, including redesigning covers, layout new books and transcribing and designing the layout for a conference leaflet. I assisted in reading committees and helped develop a new app for disabled children and parents. I also designed an Advanced Information pack to present a novelty book to booksellers.
I assisted the booksellers in their day-to-day tasks including advising customers, receiving and recording deliveries. I also set up a newsletter to help the booksellers as their previous material took to long to send to their clientele. I designed few posters for meet-ups and activities set up by the bookshop.
