Watch Out, Snail! / Kia Mataara, e Ngata!

I project managed the English and te reo Māori editions of Gay Hay and Margaret Tolland’s second picture book, engaging a translator, editing and proofreading the text, creating a marketing plan and organising overseas printing.  Watch Out, Snail! was shortlisted in the 2014 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards in the Picture Book category.

Urbanesia & Haruru Mai / Strange Resting Places

Urbanesia is a landmark collection of four Pasifika plays published by Playmarket in 2012. My work on this book included editing, typesetting, proofreading and design consultation. I greatly enjoyed working closely with Courtney Sina Meredith, poet and playwright, to bring her play Rushing Dolls into publication for the first time. I also provided editing, proofreading and design consultation for Haruru Mai / Strange Resting Places.
