We’ve newly welcomed Laure to Glasgow, and to Ringwood Publishing, so it’s time to Meet the Interns!
How did you come to work at Ringwood?
To complete my master’s degree in publishing I needed an internship. Since I already lived in Glasgow for a year as a teaching assistant I really wanted to come back. I looked at the publishers in Scotland and found that Ringwood would be a good fit.
What do you do at Ringwood?
I am the assistant managing director and I am also part of the editorial committee. Meaning I help Sandy Jamieson and Lara Sindelar managing all Ringwood’s affairs from choosing which books we publish to editing and marketing those books once published.
What’s your favourite Ringwood book?
My favourite Ringwood book is The Activist because traveling, the ocean and whales are my passions.
What sets Ringwood apart from other publishing houses?
Ringwood is unique because of its desire to put quality over income. I admire the love for books that keeps this publishing house going.
What 3 things does a good book need?
A good book needs complex characters, secrets to be discovered by the reader and an author willing to work hard to make the plot interesting and unique.
What’s your favourite spot in Glasgow?
The necropolis. I love the peaceful atmosphere there and the view of the city.
Have you ever considered writing a book yourself?
I have, and had a few ideas, but I haven’t taken the time to write them down yet.
