Over the course of twelve years working in the literary industry, Barbara Ivusic has amassed an invaluable skillset in publishing, editing, and cultivating talent.
After graduating with honors from the University of Sydney with a degree in English literature, Barbara pursued a postgraduate certificate in editing and publishing while simultaneously working for Rift Raftos Management. There, Barbara was responsible for hunting through unsolicited manuscripts to help select new clients, as well as liaising with editors and publishers.
With her new found love for helping aspiring authors discover their voice, Barbara later moved to New Author Literary Services where she acted as editor and director for eight years.
Since arriving at Inkitt, Barbara has already launched the careers of numerous new authors and succeeded in publishing five novels.
From smaller firms and old fashioned hardbacks, to big name publishing houses, like Random House and Tor, and new media innovations, she has honed skills and fostered relationships in all facets of the industry.
