Langshaw to join Pantera Press
Tom Langshaw has been appointed to the role of Commissioning Editor at Pantera Press. Langshaw has previously worked as Audio Producer and Senior Editor at Penguin Random House.
‘I’ve admired from afar the purposeful and discerning list that Ali and Lex have been building at Pantera, and they’ve assembled a wonderful group of people in their team. It’s such an exciting opportunity to work with them to champion new authors and to bring books into the world that ask big questions of their readers. I can’t wait to get started,’ said Langshaw.
‘Tom Langshaw is one of the most incisive, insightful editors I’ve had the pleasure of working with,’ said Pantera Publisher Lex Hirst. ‘I’m thrilled he’s bringing this clear-eyed vision to help grow the Pantera Press list.
‘As our Commissioning Editor, Tom will be on the lookout for exciting new local voices that spark conversation, imagination and change. We can’t wait to welcome him to the team.’
Pantera Press was recently named the #1 2020 Nielsen BookScan Heatseeker, an award recognising short-term and long-term growth. 2020 marks the fourth consecutive year of Heatseeker recognition for Pantera Press and also Pantera’s debut on the BookScan Top 10 Australian Indie Publishers list.
Langshaw will start at Pantera Press on 21 January 2021.
