Books, books, and more books, that’s what I love. I love reading books. I love collecting books. I love the idea of books. I love everything about them. I have always had a passion for books, ever since I can remember. Only recently, however, did I realize that I wanted a future in publishing. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Integrated Studies with an emphasis in Liberal Studies form Brevard College in Brevard, North Carolina. My undergraduate degree is very broad, so I decided that I needed to pursue a Master’s degree in a specific field. I happened to come across the MLitt Publishing Studies Program while visiting friends, and instantly knew that this was the course for me. I had always wanted to study abroad and this program gave me the perfect opportunity.

I made the decision to apply to the program and ultimately move to a different country to start my new adventure. I was very impressed the MLitt Publishing Studies website. The modules throughout the course are designed to give the students a well-rounded knowledge of the publishing industry. Being a person who had no prior knowledge of how the publishing industry worked, I found that the program is designed in a way that makes it very easy to grasp the information given to you. Not only does it make it easy to comprehend, it also shows you how to apply the information you have been given. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course so far, and I am really looking forward to what is to come.
