Jean Wishart: Publishing Icon

Event Details

Join author and former editor Jenny Lynch to hear about the late Jean Wishart and her successful development of New Zealand Woman's Weekly.

Woman’s Weekly editor, the late Jean Wishart, was a New Zealand publishing icon. During her 32 years at the helm, she developed the Weekly from a small newsprint journal into the best-selling woman’s magazine in the world per head of population. At the time of her retirement aged 64 in 1985, the Weekly enjoyed a readership of more than a million.

Jenny Lynch, a former Women's Weekly editor and author of Under The Covers: the Secrets of a Magazine Editor, will tell the personal story behind this shy and unassuming woman’s extraordinary success.
