    ok THANKYOU FOR SAYING THIS. I live outside of London and so to do an internship I would need to move and earn money to, you know, LIVE AND EAT and I just don’t understand how some publishers can get away with this. Especially because you can’t have a paying job alongside this because it will probs be a 5 day a week deal. I thought I was the only one who saw this as unfair and super illegal because YOU NEED TO PAY WORKERS.

    Anyway great post this blog helps me out so much! xxx

    1. It’s awful isn’t it?! My internship at JB was ¬£100 a week and that’s it, and I persevered and now that I’m employed there I whine about how unfair it is at every opportunity! It’s just total bullshit, and the people in charge don’t have a clue how much it actually costs to get a job in publishing. Few publishers seem to realise that it is definitely illegal and that there are laws trying to prevent them from fucking over their interns, it’s just all so stupid. Anyway you’re welcome I’m glad!!! xoxoxox
