I hugely enjoyed my MA. Having a year to develop my writing skills at Southampton definitely helped me get where I am today; it was a great stepping stone into the wider world.

I’ve been working for Penguin Books since May 2013. I’m thrilled to be in a job that directly uses the skills I learnt on my degree, from editing and writing to time management and juggling lots of things at once. I’ve had the chance to meet some of my childhood hero authors, including Philip Pullman, and published books including the Waterstones prize-shortlisted This Mortal Coil, and Wizards and Robots by will.i.am and Brian David Johnson.
