Margaret Sullivan joins Pantera Press as nonfiction publisher
Pantera Press is delighted to announce that Margie Sullivan will be commencing her role as Non-Fiction Publisher of Pantera Press and Lost the Plot in February 2018.
Margie began her impressive career in publishing as publisher’s assistant and later School Publisher at McGraw Hill. She went on to work at Random House Australia, initially as Commissioning Editor and then as Non-Fiction Publisher, establishing and running the Melbourne Editorial office. While living overseas, Margie worked as a literary scout for Hardie Grant and also with Michael McLoughlin book publicity in Ireland. Margie has continued to be a prominent figure in the publishing industry, maintaining close connections with agents and editors, as well as being an avid supporter of the Sydney Writer’s Festival and The Sydney Story Factory.
Pantera Press CEO Alison Green says, ‘We are incredibly excited for Margie to join our team. At the SPN conference in November, Nielson identified Pantera Press as one of the 2017 ‘heatseekers’, a small publisher with significant growth year on year and long-term growth over the past five years. This new non-fiction publisher role speaks to our continued strategic growth plans for Pantera Press. With Margie’s expertise, we look forward to shaping and having a greater impact on Australian writing culture.’
