It’s finally beginning

Recently, as some of you may have read in Week 15: The good, the bad and the unexpected, I was offered a job. For six weeks. As a temporary marketing assistant at Orion. There I was making a show card for an author event when I was interrupted. A girl came into the small meeting […]

Another day, another internship

It’s day 3 of my Publicity internship at Orion. And although I am sick of working for free this internship is turning out to be rather exciting. Today I came into the office, deposited my sandwich in the fridge and filled up a watering can. Yes, a watering can. In a publishing house. Of all […]

Thoughts of an Intern: Day 5

(Forgive me and my tardy nature) Friday had finally arrived and it came with a change. A change in department, an alteration in publishing field. From marketing to editorial and I couldn’t wait. So this morning I traveled up to Parsons Green as usual getting to the Coda centre at 09:50 sharp. I sat down to a […]

Thoughts of an Intern: Day 4

Tomorrow I shall be: Rebecca, The Intern

So tomorrow is the big day. The day that my internship at Little Tiger Press begins. Excited is not the word. I am ecstatic at the prospect of getting up with the world and exercising my brain for the day. Well, for a fortnight actually. Just to feel tired will be such a welcome feeling. […]

A publisher calls

I hope that when I begin to type this, my phone rings. I hope I am interrupted by the shrill, alarming vibrations of my decrepid iPhone. I hope she rings me soon, she is 11 minutes late; 11 minutes over our specified time. I should’ve just answered the questions at 11:11 am, when she first […]
