My decision to stay on at Stirling after completing my degree in English Studies was a great one. I had been seriously considering the MLitt in Publishing Studies from about Christmas last year and I got in touch with Claire Squires about the course and her enthusiasm and inspiration really spurred me on.  I met  with Padmini Ray Murray during the last year of my undergraduate degree and she showed me the publishing projects completed by previous students and told me more about the course, I knew instantly that it was for me. I then applied, got in and never looked back.

I had looked into studying Publishing at a few other places but remaining in Stirling has been a worthwhile decision, not only are loads of my friends still nearby but I also have the familiarity of the university and endless support from the staff.  The course provides a great deal of opportunity and support to continue my professional development through an abundance of networking and literary events, and of course, not forgetting the social ones! Typically with most Arts students, I wanted to keep the close relationship with one of my passions, literature, and Publishing Studies combines my pleasure with professionalism.

It’s only a few weeks into the course, and already everyone is being kept on their toes! I have met some amazing people and I look forward to embracing the year ahead with everybody.
