New Frontier sets up London office

New Frontier Publishing has set up a London office to focus on the UK market.

The children’s publisher released its first books in the UK this month, including selected Australian picture book and junior fiction titles.

New Frontier publisher Sophia Whitfield told the Bookseller that the company is actively commissioning writers and illustrators in the UK, and will approach UK publishing ‘with the same commitment and creativity we have gained a reputation for in the Australian and international market’.

New Frontier UK commercial director Roy Johnson said ‘it’s been an absolute joy working closely with Sophia and Peter [Whitfield] over the past year’. ‘It is exciting to see some of the new talent that Sophia is sourcing in the UK and bringing to the list in 2017 and 2018,’ said Johnson.

Orca Book Services will distribute New Frontier in the UK. View New Frontier’s UK website here.
