Harper Perennial and Harper paperbacks publisher Carrie Kania will depart, heading to London to serve as an agent at Conville & Walsh. Her departure also sparked a reorganization at the publisher.

Harper Division publisher Jonathan Burnham now oversees Harper Perennial. William Morrow, Avon, and HarperVoyager publisher Liate Stehlik will take control of Harper paperbacks.

Digital Editorial Director Picked at HarperCollins

hclogod.gifYesterday HarperCollins named Margot Schupf to the newly created position of digital editorial director at the conglomerate publisher’s Morrow/Avon/Eos group.

According to Crain’s NY, the experimental post will allow Schupf to explore backlist titles, work on digital promotions, and even develop digital-only books. Before joining HarperCollins, Schupf was an associate publisher at the company.

Morrow/Avon/Eos publisher Liate Stehlik explained the new position in the article: “Everyone has a digital hat on these days … Now we have one person charged with looking at books from this [digital] perspective and who may find opportunities you don’t see when you’re entrenched in the day-to-day.”
