#UCLPub2016 – Week 1 [Book Master Training]

To those not in the know – which is probably nobody reading this since I’m pretty sure at this point only my mum reads it and occasionally my sister too – I got into the MA Publishing course at UCL last year and deferred.

Well, it arrived a while ago, but I thought it’d be a good idea to make a weekly summary post of my academic shenanigans. I vaguely remember someone in the previous year did the same – up till a certain point – and I found it really useful and even comforting, to get a peek into what I might be doing in the following year!

Enough babbling and here is what Inductions Week was like…

#UCLPub2016 – Introduction to Publishing Jobs [Book Master Training]

On the second day (28/9/16) of my VERY first week of my Publishing post-graduate course, there was an event held byΒ The Publishers AssociationΒ and UCL. It was open to people in the industry and those who are curious – or students!

I took a lot of notes so I thought I’d type them up along with the details of the speakers from that evening. Not sure if these notes will be of any use to anyone, but here you go!

Shanah Tovah Dudes!! 🍎🍯🍏 [Literary Lists]

That means ‘Happy New Year’ in Hebrew…. BECAUSE IT’S THE JEWISH NEW YEAR!!! Also known asΒ Rosh Hashanah.

I’m in the midst of my intensive second week of my Publishing MA here at UCL in London, but I thought I’d compile a ‘listicle’ of some Jewish themed or centric books in honour of the new year.

Comics 09/2016 [Crowdfund THIS]

I want to try something new here. Crowdfunding through Kickstarter and the like is a really cool way to get book or comic anthologies published, as well as single books either by indie authors or indie publishers!

So I’ve decided that with this new lil’ category that I’d feature a few cool projects that are currently running, and even a few that are independently sold on websites like Gumroad with every post.

THIS POST has comic projects on Kickstarter that are still running and needΒ yourΒ help!!!

Monthly Roundup β†ͺ AugπŸ’‚πŸ’·

Oh August. What a weird month you’ve been.

I landed in the UK on the 3rd and then got sick like a day later from ye olde Travellers Flu/Cold. Which then lasted something around 2 weeks. But I powered through that and even went to the Nine Worlds convention, in which I also was part of a Star Trek roundtable!!!

And when I FINALLY RECOVERED, I spent the weekend up in Edinburgh visiting some friends!Β Which was of course super gr8, but as soon as I got back to England I got sick. AGAIN. And that has taken me about a week to recover from. Which of course was SUPER.

Did I mention I also got my phone stolen OUT OF MY HAND within the first week of being back in the UK?Β Thanks August. That was… Interesting.

5 GBBO Fiction Fixes [Literary Lists]

Tonight I watched the second episode of the latest season of the Great British Bake Off. Which I’m sure everyone knows is the most stressful and adrenaline pumping baking show in the history of theΒ world.

So in honour of this new season, I thought I’d compile a list of books – and a few comics! – that will surely curb your cravings for GBBO in-between episodes.
