Hello, My name is Thomas and I am doing work experience with Black Dog Publishing.
I arrived in Melbourne on Saturday morning from the ACT, excited, but a little nervous at the things I would be getting to do during the week. I arrived a little early Monday morning and met several of the staff, all of who are very friendly and made me feel very welcome.
It is currently the start of day two and so far I have had a really good time. I have; read a book the company was thinking about buying and filled out a readers report on it, checked through a book about to be sent to the printers (perfect, just so you know), done two coffee runs, read through a manuscript, found a bunch of design reference pictures and now I’m writing a BLOG! (Completely new experience by the way).
There’s apparently a meeting starting soon and it seems interesting.
Three days left after this one and I’m looking forward to whatever I may be doing in that time.
