Anna Simpson

Senior Editor, Bloomsbury

“Anna has been the managing editor on, at times, up to two full lists in the Adult Trade Editorial Department of Bloomsbury Publishing. While juggling up to fifty books a year and simultaneously being responsible for updating and introducing systems to more effectively put books through press, she has also helped to restructure the department (multiple times in 2015) as well as train various assistant editors and editorial assistants in light of these changes. Ask anyone who comes into contact with her and they will agree that her work ethic is tireless and her demeanour sunny and warm.

Despite all this she is very rarely (if at all) recognised as the extraordinary individual that she is. If you are able to recognise her as one of the industry’s unsung heroes, no doubt a raft of people would agree with this nomination.”
