Jennifer Hudson, a former undergraduate and MLitt student at Newcastle, did work experience at Egmont.

"During my work experience at Egmont I got to see many different facets of the publishing industry. I learnt a lot about how the process works.

"I had been interested in finding out more about publishing, so to do work experience as part of my MLitt was a fantastic opportunity.

"The Egmont team were really welcoming and were always happy to answer any questions I had. Work experience at Egmont has been a great introduction to publishing.

"This placement has convinced me that publishing is what I want to do."
