Anna Hodge

I completed the Whitireia publishing course in Auckland in 2003, in a draughty little house on the side of Mt St John in Epsom, alongside nine other aspiring publishers. The skills I learned and the people I met during that year helped me get a job in 2005 at Auckland University Press, where I worked until October 2016 as an editorial assistant, editor and senior editor. There I was involved with the production of more than 250 history, biography and memoir, poetry and politics, Maori and Pacific studies, and art and architecture titles, and worked with a terrific array of wonderful, stroppy and learned writers and academics.

Now I work as a freelance editor and consultant for a range of different publishers, art galleries, magazines and museums, but I’m still aiming for pleasant communications, efficient systems and the most effective partnerships of content and display – all things I was taught to strive for back in that little wooden house in Epsom.
