Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation?
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?

I just kept applying for internships and eventually someone responded to me! I didn’t do anything special, just showed them examples of my writing, and expressed how eager I was for the position. I’ve been applying for months so patience is the key.
I didn’t do any courses on publishing, but at this point I really wish I had (it might have been easier to get into the field). I just did a simple English degree. So I guess I kind of came at it from a different angle, in that I’ve studied literature and know what makes a good novel. But most of the publishing internships I’ve looked at mainly just focus on finding someone with an eye for detail and a passion for novels. Whether that be media or journalism students, or even an English major like myself.
Good luck with everything!
Oh we don’t own our heavens now
We only own our hell
And if you don’t know that by now
Then you don’t know me that well
guys, I FINALLY got a publishing internship and just spent 20 minutes on the phone with my supervisor. I am so excited. It’s so surreal. It’s everything I want to do and I’ll get to learn the ropes and have that on my resume so by the time I move to London next year, I’ll have more of an understanding of what exactly I want to do and what it entails.
