Today I'm chatting about how I got my first internships and jobs in publishing! Get the first 3 months of Skillshare for $0.99 👉http://skl.sh/booksandquills99 (valid until the end of January 2018)
Thanks to Skillshare for sponsoring this video!
It's so hard to find info about working in publishing online, so I figure I'd share my story and a bit about my day to day activities in the different jobs I've had.
Everyone's story and situation is different and the application processes and jobs also change over time, but I hope it's still helpful.
If you have any questions or suggestions for future videos around this theme, leave them in a comment below!

Can you review my book?
I’m always happy to hear about upcoming books, but I’m afraid I don’t review self-published books and can only accept a small number of books for review. I enjoy reading classics, dystopian/apocalyptic novels, sci-fi, translated fiction and a variety of graphic novels, YA and contemporary literary fiction. Get in touch at [email protected]
Where is your accent from?
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, studied English Lit at Leiden University (also in the Netherlands), studied in the US for 3 months and have lots of American friends. I'm definitely not Irish or Canadian, I promise!
Where do you live?
I live in London and have been here for 4 years now.
How did you get into publishing?
I did publishing work experience, did a lot of networking and learned everything I know about social media from creating and running this channel. (P.s. You don't necessarily have to study Publishing or English to get a job in publishing!).
