Meet the Editor
Isobel Bainton, Commissioning Editor
I came to Policy Press in 2012 from Wiley Blackwell. One of my ancestors set up one of England’s first reformatory schools for girls just down the road from our office in Bristol. She was fierce campaigner for access to education for poor children, particularly young girls, which are passions that I, and Policy Press, share.
Getting to choose who and what we publish is a huge privilege (and responsibility!). I love working with authors from the start of the process, helping them to develop their ideas and shape their book to be the best it can be.
Throughout the process, I maintain overall responsibility for the project and never lose the sense of pride and accomplishment when we receive the first copies from the printer. Once the book is published and out in the world it’s great to watch how it’s received and what a difference it makes.
