OICP alumna buys publishing company
Melissa Eveleigh graduated in June 2018 from Oxford Brookes University with a BA in Publishing Media. She has bought the publisher March Hamilton Media and intends to expand its operations in the area of children's publishing.
As reported in the Burnham and Highbridge Weekly News, she 'has moved its office from Taunton to Street. She said: “I want to give authors the chance to be part of the publishing world without having to tackle the hurdles of getting noticed by big London publishers. It’s really important for me to do this in Somerset – it gave me so much when I was growing up.
Publishing has been London-centric for too long, and with areas in the north getting attention from the industry I thought, what about the South West? I also want to offer children and young adults the chance to read relevant books that reflect their everyday lives in a real and supportive way.” '
