Since May 2016, I've been Head of Media Partnerships for book discovery platform Bookwitty, based out of London. I've involved with the project for a while through my work with Keeward (which is part of the same group).
The platform brings together editorial content, community content, and a massive catalogue of books to redefine how we discover and recommend books. Think of the way we currently find books online as a bit of a supermarket, we're aiming to feel a bit more like spending an hour in your favourite bookshop.
While we operate as a startup in terms of flexibility and creativity, we've been around for a while, work with some of the biggest publishers, most exciting indies, and most inspirational local bookstores. We've sold 10 million books in 149 countries since 2010, and we're looking to create the largest community of book lovers in the world.
Personally, I'm running the creation of our network of media affiliates for the Bookwitty Partner Network and constantly working on our editorial strategy. I also work on our Creative Cluster program and our Artist-in-Residence initiatives.
