Editor & Publisher, London
With a solid track record in children’s and teen publishing, Joanna joined NoTosh in 2013 with a specific remit to source new writing and speaking talent from educators, authors and creative thinkers around the world. Acting as a sounding board for new ideas and thoughts, Joanna guides our new authors through the publishing process, delivering fantastic books about learning, creativity and design thinking in electronic and paper format.
“From the word go, my passion was firing children’s imaginations and opening their eyes to new ideas through books – a passion that aligned perfectly with NoTosh’s ethos of enhancing rich and creative learning by looking at the world from new perspectives!
Before joining NoTosh, I spent five years editing fiction for younger children and teenagers at Hodder Children’s Books and in 2005 I joined Simon & Schuster UK to run their Children’s Editorial Department as Senior Commissioning Editor before moving to Mulcaby Conway Associates as Editorial Director for Children’s Books. I still work as a freelance editor today and recently co-found Skylark Literary – an agency designed to discover tomorrow’s great authors for children’s fiction.”
