Hello! So I'm just about to start my MA, and I'm making a pre-PhD 'bucket list' of activities that would help me get some good experience/field knowledge under my belt before I start applying for doctoral funding.

Are there any other activities that might not be so obvious? (Oh and I'm a literature student!)
