“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”

-Anna Quindlen

I am Marie from Berlin but spend the last seven years abroad. I am an extroverted introvert, which means I am a curious and communicative person and positive life lover, but I do recharge best with my nose in a book. Being far away from home, missing family and friends, made me look for this special feeling for secureness and I have found it in books. The symbiotic relationship between me and written words are the foundation of my passion for publishing.

After graduating from the University of Vienna, where I studied a BA in Cultural and Social Anthropology, the next logical step for me was to find the perfect master programme. I wanted to find a course, which would enable me with important industry knowledge and a wide variety of skills – basically a hands-on programme!

When visiting Stirling, I immediately fell in love with the campus and the open-minded people. Being a part of the MLitt 2018/19 feels great! I met so many inspiring people already learned so much about publishing and cannot wait to set foot into the industry next year. I am especially interested in all aspects of marketing and design but also highly enjoying the glimpses into all the other departments of the industry.
