Hi! I'm Flavia
During the day, I work in digital publishing in London, and I produce and host the Publishing Insight podcast in my free time. Publishing Insight obtained over 2000 downloads in the first 3 months since the launch and 12000 downloads with Season 2.
The podcast has reached #26 in the Apple Podcasts UK Careers chart, the Top 20 in various countries, including Italy, South Africa, and UAE, and the Top 10 in Egypt and Hungaria.
In 2019, thanks to the podcast I was longlisted for the London Book Fair Trailblazer Awards; and in 2020, Publishing Insight was shortlisted for Steady's Independent Media Academy.
The first season of Publishing Insight was born in 2018 as the major project for my MA in Digital Publishing at Oxford Brookes University, in order to gather advice from publishing professionals for students like me, aspiring to a career in the publishing world.
My goal for the second season is to explore more of the publishing industry, including roles that are extremely important for the success of a book, but outside of traditional publishing companies.
I hope you will enjoy the new episodes; you can find them on iTunes, Spotify, or your favourite podcast app. And please, do get in touch with any feedback via email or on Twitter and Instagram @FlamFlam91.
Publishing Insight is an independent podcast so if you'd like to support me, you can donate on my Kofi page, use my affiliate link to purchase books on my Bookshop.org shop, or recommend the podcast to a friend and leave a review wherever you listen to it.
