Kate Blackwood is the Wheeler Centre's publicist.
Kate previously worked as Marketing Manager and Publicist at Scribe Publications. Before that, she worked as Editor at Books+Publishing and, a long time ago, as a large purple teddy bear that stood outside a toy shop waving at cars. She lasted in that job for quite a few weeks.
Kate has studied literature at the University of Tasmania, and writing and editing at RMIT. When not hanging around bookish events, she spends most of her time with her rabbits Esteban and Tao, buying unnecessary pieces of clothing and watching Jeopardy.
