I am looking for a commissioning editorial (or similar) role on an adult non-fiction list, ideally spanning mental health, wellness, spirituality, and/or smart thinking.
Having worked in the independent publishing industry for a decade, most recently launching and running Lemon Quartz Publishing (closure announcement via The Bookseller here), I have gained valuable experience in many stages of the publishing process, from commissioning to communications. I feel my greatest strengths lie in building and maintaining strong relationships with authors and guiding content from unedited manuscripts and concepts to thought-provoking, bookshelf-worthy books.
After working mostly independently for the last few years, I am keen to join and contribute to a passionate and ambitious team; and in true indie publishing style, I enjoy rolling up my sleeves and getting stuck in wherever needed across the business. Based in Warwickshire, I am looking for a hybrid working set-up, and I'm able to commute to London on a weekly basis. I am open to full- and part-time opportunities.
Please email me at [email protected] to discuss any potential openings and to request a copy of my CV.
