Auckland University Press senior editor selected for prestigious Frankfurt Fellowship Programme
Auckland University Press Senior Editor Anna Hodge has won a coveted place on the 2012 Frankfurt Fellowship Programme, one of only 16 young publishers chosen from around the world and the only Kiwi.
In the run-up to the Frankfurt Book Fair, this annual programme promotes ‘information exchange, professional dialogue and the creation of networks between international publishers’ and provides enormous opportunities for younger publishers to advance in their careers.
Anna will be in Germany for two weeks from 30 September to visit publishing houses and meet publishing professionals in Frankfurt, Cologne and Berlin. She’ll learn about the unique characteristics of the German book market and will update her international colleagues on recent market developments in New Zealand.
The programme’s highlight will be participating in the Frankfurt Book Fair from 10 to 14 October, where New Zealand will be the 2012 Country of Honour and more than 60 New Zealand authors and 100 performers will showcase Kiwi talent.
