Market Place

Clive Hebard is the Managing Editor, Melbourne – Penguin Random House Australia.


When authors deliver their manuscript, they expect to hold a book in their hands within a few months, to download their ebook, and listen to the audio edition. My role at Penguin Random House Australia is to help make this happen. I have worked at independent and corporate book publishers in the UK and Australia, leading editorial and production processes from manuscript to final files, with twenty years hands-on editing experience of fiction and non-fiction for adults. I especially love literary and commercial fiction, memoir, cookery and personal development.

Penguin Random House Australia celebrates writers, stories and ideas that entertain, educate and inspire. We champion emerging voices that nourish a passion for reading.
