“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” -George R. R. Martin.

If there’s one thing in my life that I’ve always had a passion for, it’s words. It’s literature, writing, books, tales and stories. And I’m eager to live far more than just a thousand lives.

Hi, I’m Amanda Losonsky, and I’m working towards my MLitt in Publishing Studies at the University of Stirling. I am a native of the United States, born and raised in New Jersey, and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in English with a concentration in Writing from King’s College. During that time, I interned at Northeast Editing, a small publishing company in Northeast Pennsylvania, in addition to working as an Editor at my college’s writing center and taking shifts at my local Barnes and Noble. When the time came for me to pursue my postgraduate degree, I knew that Scotland would be my destination, as I’ve always admired the country. Stirling was the perfect blend of gorgeous country scenery, historic landmarks, and upbeat city life, so the University of Stirling soared above all other universities in comparison. When I looked further into the Publishing Studies program, I discovered that despite the university’s young age, the Stirling Centre for International Publishing and Communication already had an outstanding reputation. The more I learned about the program, the deeper I fell in love, and the choice really made itself.

I can say without a doubt in mind that the University of Stirling was the path I was meant to take. I’m on Twitter and I can also be found on LinkedIn.
