"A typical day for my placement would start with an updating of Poet in the City’s social media, researching interesting articles and scheduling in posts. I would usually then research potential speakers, poets and performers for certain events, ranging from academics and poets to celebrities and musicians. My last task of the day was always to collate feedback forms. Highlights included researching future performers for Poet in the City events and the chance to have 1:1 discussions with the CEO and Programmes Manager on the specifics of running a charity."

“During my placement, I answered emails from the publicity manager and I also assisted the publicity manger in collating lists of journalists and editors to send press releases to using software that allowed access to the contact information of writers for various publications. Each day provided different opportunities, such as meeting authors that were being published by Icon and writing my own press release to send out to online bloggers, and I thoroughly enjoyed my placement throughout.”
