Publishing student sets up freelance company

Oxford Brookes has inspired at least one of its MA Publishing students to go it alone and enter the freelance world of publishing.  Here is the story of Kumquat, told by Emma Anderson...

The world has Orange, Apple, Pineapple and now, Brookes has inspired the creation of Kumquat - a name chosen after half an hour of random word calling out amongst the smaller members of my "team" and, I hasten to add, despite the advice of business analysts saying "Never name a company after a fruit" - cf. various legal wranglings.

Summer internships at the World Bank

Jing Wang and Nina Schipper, MA students in Publishing at Oxford Brookes University, are experiencing a challenging and enriching summer this year. At Washington DC, within the headquarters of the World Bank, the two students are pursuing an internship at the Office of the Publisher of the organisation.

Jing Wang (China), is working with the Marketing and Online Resources publishing team, dealing with marketing analysis, rights licensing and worldwide co-publishing partners. Those include some British companies such as OUP and Palgrave Macmillan. Jing interprets the internship as ‘a great opportunity to know the World Bank working system and its projects, and to let the world know more about the World Bank.' Everyday she feels very glad when stepping into the beautiful office building: ‘Working at the World Bank signifies that you are going to do something meaningful and helpful for the people in the world, especially those living in poor countries.'

Nina Schipper (Brazil), has been working with the Acquisitions team, and so far has been involved in the preparation of leading publications such as the World Development Report, the Annual Report, and the youth guide Getting to Know the World Bank. She has also been participating in the e-library project, which makes available in full text, for readers everywhere, the contents of the World Bank's books and reports.  Nina commented that: ‘Learning about  the serious yet creative way the World Bank disseminates the knowledge on development that is produced here, either through printed books or online resources, is an important step in my career.'
