Hello! My name is Michelle, and I’m currently an MSc Publishing student at Edinburgh Napier University. It’s the latest in a long line of creatively-themed pursuits, beginning with studying theatre at my local college, going on to study English Literature and Film & Television Studies at the University of Glasgow, and, after a few years muddling through retail management, ending up here.
I’ve loved stories in all shapes and forms for as long as I can remember, making up my own as often as I devoured books, films, and television shows. After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided I wanted to know more about the publishing industry, with a view to potentially using that knowledge to help my own writing career. Since beginning the course, however, I’ve discovered a variety of options that I didn’t know were available before – so while my dreams of writing that New York Times bestseller are still kicking around, right now I’m enjoying digging into the complexities of editorial work, rights, and the fiction market.
