I am Almudena Santalices, a Spanish postgraduate student at the University of Stirling. Since I can remember books have been part of my life.  When I was a little girl I wasn’t aware of how important they were for me, and the time they absorbed my daily routine. But it wasn’t until a few years ago, when I realized I wanted to get involved in Publishing.

A few months before finishing my degree in Journalism back in Madrid, I started an internship in the Communication Deparment of a Spanish Publishing house.  It was a great opportunity and, it also allowed me to poke around a little bit into the broad publishing world.

When I decided to continue my studies, the Stirling Centre for International Publishing and Communication and its MLitt in Publishing Studies were the most suitable choice.

Here, at the university we are learning and experiencing how the publishing world really works; with its deadlines, team work, and stress. There is time for everything: classes, group meetings and presentations, lectures from visitor speakers, involved in different publishing roles…, and also last, but not least, we have time for some sightseeing and cocktail parties, to help us meet people from the publishing world.
