Meet the Editors
Victoria Pittman, Head of Commissioning
I have been at Policy Press for five years and was at Oxford University Press working as a commissioning editor for law books and online products for 5 years before that. I was drawn to Bristol by my South-West roots and the opportunity to join a small and collaborative team.
I really enjoy working on books that I feel passionate about and that can make a difference. I love that we publish such a wide range of content, from the high quality monograph which advances the field to the accessible social commentary you might see in a bookshop. Commissioning gives me the chance to help authors publish their work in the best way possible, collaborate with them to discover the format which suits the content and audience, shape the book with my input if needed and also guide them with the expert advice of peer reviewers. The best books are a partnership between author and publisher and this starts at the commissioning stage.
