It’s November 2015, it seems so early on in the course, yet our heads are buried deep in our degree.
First and foremost, let me introduce myself and my 4 fellow bloggers. It’s only been a month and a half since the UCL Centre for Publishing have again, started teaching a new group of MA students. 4 of which include me (Sarah Louise Osborne), Elisabeth Wilkes (otherwise known as Niki), Camilla Lunde, and last but not least, Stephanie King.
We were fortunate enough to bag ourselves the titles of “Blogging Manager” for the UCL Centre for Publishing blog, and we’re all really excited to get stuck in!
What to expect from the blog?
From now on, until the end of our degree, the 4 of us will blog once a month on our own chosen blog series. Guest bloggers, and interviews will be interspersed throughout. We aim to show aspiring publishers what our course involves, tips on how to handle university workload, and most of all – show everybody why the publishing industry is so great.
The 4 blogging series are as followed:
- Sarah: Struggles and tips from a Commuting Student
- Niki: The Publishing Industry today
- Camilla: International Perspectives
- Stephanie: The Publishers’ Atlas
Each series will be published on a monthly basis, every Wednesday at 5pm.
Not just a blog, but a whole Media Team!
So, as the title states – we’re not working alone. We are working with other students controlling other media platforms – and shall together, be bringing you lots of interesting material. The platforms involve:
Twitter: @uclpublishing – Managed by Zoe Sharples and Kirsty Mackay.
Youtube – Managed by Mirjam Coenraads.
Instagram: @publishingucl – Managed by Delia Caroline Bennett, Hannah Reed, and Charlotte Parker.
All of our team are committed to bringing a variety of material and information on publishing (at UCL and in general). Twitter will be posting 2-3 times a day, Instagram 1-2 times a day (including series: Saturday Shelfie, UCL Pub recommends, lecturer’s and guest speaker quotes, and Commuter Diaries). Finally, Youtube will be posting videos on: the MA in Publishing at UCL, student experiences, guest speaker interviews, event videos and the London Book fair.
We hope that our posts are enjoyable and informative, and stay tuned for our first official series post next Wednesday!
