pubblogHello there! My name is Kena Longabaugh and I hail from the United States. My journey to the MLitt programme at the University of Stirling wasn’t a typical one. I received my BA in Political Science from Western Washington University–however, somewhere along the way, I realized a life in politics wasn’t for me. My English courses were the ones that inspired and motivated me the most during university and I eventually decided to pursue my literary passions. I’ve always had a deep love for books, reading and writing and a career in Publishing seemed like the perfect fit.

One of the reasons I chose Stirling’s programme is because of the broad and introductory nature of the course. I’m excited to jump in and try my hand at all of the different aspects of the publishing industry. I’m particularly interested in design and production and I’m eager to learn the ins and outs of InDesign and Photoshop. Photography is another passion of mine and I’ve been fortunate enough to win several awards and host my own exhibition. As such, art and design has been a part of my life for some time. I’m also eager to learn about marketing.

Other things I love include traveling, hiking, dessert, Harry Potter, cider, cats, Greek food (I studied abroad in Greece for a semester and it might be my favorite place in the world), yoga, coffee and camping.
