Stephanie Barton,  Macmillan Children’s Books

Stephanie currently combines her role as Publishing Director, Preschool at Macmillan Children’s Books with a number of independent projects across the children’s sector. A board member of The Arts College University Bournemouth and with over twenty years’ publishing experience, she brings significant depth of insight into what makes children tick and how they engage with content.

Formerly MD of Penguin Children’s books, Stephanie believes that publishers must be ‘where children are and where they are heading’ and that brilliant combinations of traditional and new media will best serve their needs as readers of the future.
