Alex Adsett & Kristina Schulz

Kristina Schulz has worked as an editor and publisher for twenty-four years in Brisbane, Sydney, New York and London. She is thrilled to work with many of Australia’s most talented authors and illustrators in her role as Senior Editor at Walker Books Australia and as a mentor to upcoming and established creators.

Kristina has spoken at writers’ festivals and conferences, contributed to industry boards and panels, judged writers’ prizes, and has helped authors and illustrators at pitching sessions and with manuscript feedback, structural work, editing and mentoring. She loves working with Australian voices and is always drawn to books with strong themes and stories with heart. She is passionate about getting books into the hands of readers and would love to see a teacher librarian in every school around the country.
