My top tip for people aspiring to get into publishing is to be open to all different kinds of jobs, and to research the various different roles on offer. Editorial and marketing are the first roles people think of, but there’s so much more that goes into keeping a publishing house running! You could work in production, or design, or rights, or operations… or like me, in corporate communications. There’s interesting jobs to be found in every corner of publishing.
