Our next First Friday Club meeting falls on Friday 5 April and features Angela Meyer, publisher at Echo Publishing, the four-year-old Australian fiction and nonfiction imprint, part of Bonnier Books UK.
Angela has helped develop and publish the work of a range of Australian authors, including Heather Morris, Alison Evans, Emma Viskic, Bridie Jabour, and Meg Keneally.
Angela brings her unique perspective of the publishing world from her own experience as a writer. Her writing has been published in a wide variety of journals and media, such as Best Australian Stories, Island, The Big Issue, The Australian, The Lifted Brow and Killings, and her debut novel, A Superior Spectre, first published by Peter Bishop Books/Ventura in 2018, will be published in the UK by Saraband in 2019.
Join us as our CEO Jane McCredie chats with Angela about her work, career journey, and everything in between.
