What Editors Want


Quadrille - Susannah Otter

Season 1, Ep. 6

Susanna Otter is a Commissioning Editor at Quadrille, one of the leading non-fiction publishers in the UK who specialise in areas like food & drink, craft, lifestyle, design, and popular culture.

To date on this podcast I've tended to concentrate on fiction, so I was delighted to get the chance to talk to Susannah about non-fiction in general and in particular about the art of making cookbooks. Susannah is the editor behind cookbooks like Carbs by Laura Goodman and the Quality Chop House's cookbook. She's also worked with authors like Mel B, Simon Amstell and The Slumflower.

We also discuss the London Book Fair, how Susannah got into publishing, and finding a balance between being a reader and an editor.
