Imogen Davies has been doing a work placement with us for the last few months, as part of her Publishing MA at York St John University. We asked her to pick out some books from our catalogue and write a blog about them, so here it is - take it away, Imogen!
Although it’s been about a year since the romance drama Normal People was brought to our screens, it’s difficult to log into social media without eventually scrolling past an artfully taken photo of the book or screen capture of the show, featuring a devastating quote, or perhaps more likely, discussion on Paul Mescal’s engagement. The show is a heart-achingly accurate portrayal of love and all the embarrassments, joys and complications it brings.
Over the course of 10 weeks, beginning in March, I’ve been working virtually with The Emma Press on a placement focusing on marketing and publicity. My experience here will form the basis of my MA Publishing dissertation as I reflect on what I’ve been up to as well as the publishing world more widely.
