Exit interview: Anna Moulton, Magabala Books

The outgoing CEO of Magabala Books is proud to be leaving a thriving organisation.

Based on Yawuru Country in Rubibi/Broome, Magabala Books is Australia’s leading Indigenous publisher that champions Aboriginal and Torrres Strait Island voices and produces a wide range of books: memoir, fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, social history, children’s picture books and poetry. 

After nine and a half years of steering the publishing house, CEO Anna Moulton has decided to move on. ‘It has been a huge journey of transformation for the organisation and now it’s time for someone else to bring new energy and experience to the role. Knowing when to leave is so important. I have achieved all I hoped to and more, and Magabala is in a great position to hand over,’ she tells ArtsHub.
