lucy cuthew children's book editor

After obtaining a degree in English at the University of Birmingham, I took a masters in Children’s Literature. My MPhil thesis was concerned with ideology, theology and eschatology in contemporary children’s fiction. I have worked in publishing since 2005. Before I went freelance I was Commissioning Editor at Meadowside Children’s Books.

I have commissioned picture books, junior fiction and young adult fiction. I enjoy working closely with authors, developing writing and making great books worth reading.
