Paul Stevens, Senior Commissioning Editor
I joined Bristol University Press in 2017, having spent several years publishing psychology and linguistics books with Palgrave Macmillan. I started my career at Cambridge University Press and have worked in a variety of publishing roles across the social sciences and humanities.
While every book is the product of an author’s vision and perseverance, I firmly believe that good publishing is about collaboration. Starting with the initial pitch and proposal, I enjoy working closely with my authors to help shape their ideas and ensure that the books realise their full potential. It’s a privilege to be able to do this at a press which values quality over quantity, and that’s unafraid to try some different things along the way.
