Townsend joins ‘Griffith REVIEW’, Thwaites departs

The Griffith REVIEW has announced the appointment of Hamish Townsend as editorial manager.

Townsend, who was previously a journalist and communications officer at Griffith University, took up the position in May. As previously reported by Books+Publishing, the position of editorial manager replaces deputy editor, which was previously held by Nick Bray.

Townsend is ‘responsible for managing the editorial and production process and developing content for the new Griffith REVIEW website,’ Griffith REVIEW associate publisher Susan Hornbeck told Books+Publishing.

In related news, the publication’s production manager Paul Thwaites is leaving Griffith REVIEW after 11 years. Thwaites managed the production of ‘all forty-five editions’ of the publication, Griffith REVIEW editor Julianne Schultz told Books+Publishing.

‘It is no mean feat to have managed this process and never miss a deadline,’ she said. ‘Over this time Paul has worked with hundreds of writers ensuring that the essays, stories and poems we have published in print and online have been presented as well as possible.’

‘Paul has been an essential member of the Griffith REVIEW team since the start and will be greatly missed.’
