Publishing Manager

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) announced Nicola Robinson as their new Publishing Manager. Robinson commenced this role in the month of September.

She has worked in publishing, journalism and community arts, with a focus on children’s books. She holds a Master’s Degree in Children’s Literature (Macquarie) and has both spoken and published internationally on Australian children’s literature.

From 2005 to 2012, she worked for the book packager Laguna Bay Publishing, including commissioning, editing and project managing the APA Educational Publishing Award-winning Indigenous education series ‘Yarning Strong’ (Oxford University Press).

Robinson later worked as senior editor at Walker Books Australia and HarperCollins Publishers Australia. More recently, Nicola has been commissioning fiction at HQ, a division of HarperCollins Publishers Australia.

“The ILF warmly welcomes Nicola to the team. We are excited and impressed by her extensive knowledge and experience in the publishing industry and what she can bring to ILF’s Community Publishing Projects program,” said ILF CEO Ben Bowen.

“The Foundation is focusing on books written and illustrated by children and adults in remote Communities, in languages of their choice and we believe Nicola will be well placed to continue to develop and expand this program in ways that align with the wishes and needs of remote Communities.”
