Hi! My name is Isobel and I am currently studying MSc Publishing at Edinburgh Napier. I moved to Edinburgh from the Scottish Highlands in 2011 to study English Literature at Edinburgh University, where I spent 4 years reading and trying to figure out how to make a career out of it.
Through the course so far I’ve learned that publishing is so much more than just reading, and discovered interests in marketing and design that I never knew I would have. My dream is to work in fiction publishing – preferably somewhere abroad.
Outside of university, I’m still learning lots – I’m trying to teach myself coding, and Spanish. The rest of the time I’m reading, socialising, or wishing I was on a beach in Argentina. Favourite books change all the time; right now they are Under the Net by Iris Murdoch and Alexander Masters’ Stuart: A Life Backwards.
