Angela Briggs has worked in the publishing industry for 25 years. Besides freelancing as writer and editor, she also has experience of the full-time side of publishing. Her most recent work experience was a five-year stint at a small local book publisher here she managed the editing, marketing and production aspects of local fiction aimed at encouraging young South Africans to read. This experience strengthened her belief that books play an irreplaceable role in creating empathy and forging connections between people. She has just started her own writing project in the form of a blog to bring her love of South African books together with another passion of hers: art.
