Last week, in a presentation ceremony at Central Park’s Loeb Boat House, Hyperion/Voice editorial director Barbara Jones (left) received the W Award from the YWCA of the City of New York. The prize recognizes “[Jones's] contribution to the book and magazine publishing industry and for being a role model to a younger generation of women.” The award was presented by meteorologist Janice Huff of New York’s WNBC.

Jones joined Hyperion as an executive editor in February of 2008 after serving as a deputy editor at More; soon thereafter, she became the editorial director of Hyperion’s Voice imprint, and was named editorial director of Hyperion itself just shy of three months ago.
