Have you ever been curious about who makes the handbound books BatCat Press produces? As we go through the second half of our 2015 – 2016 year at BatCat Press, we’ll introduce you to all twelve of the staff members that work year-round on creating our beautiful journals and publications! We hope you enjoy!

Recently, Mallory has taken on some responsibility with our social media. “I would say I spend the most time doing communications, and in my spare time, doing the garlands,” she said. She helps us reach out to authors to contact them about edits and production updates, and she also took on the task of updating our Twitter more frequently. Plus, she helps come up with ideas for blog posts, including “Meet The Staff!”
Mallory said her favorite part of being on staff is getting to “work together with others to do different projects, whatever they are.” She’s a really good team player, and she has tons of good ideas! For instance, she’s starting to develop cards to sell for different holidays – we’re doing a test run for this Valentine’s day, since we’ve never made them before.
When asked what she brings to the staff, she joked, “I’m a valuable member because of my beauty.”
Come back in a week for our next staff member!
