“The best thing about being a publisher? Helping authors’ dreams come true.”
An independent publisher since 1989 when she started Pierce Press after moving to the Boston area from New York City, IPNE board member and past president Charlotte Pierce has long advocated for the collaborative economy. She wrote the editorial, Collaboration Is the New Competition, in the 2015 IPNE Catalog.
Charlotte welcomes inquiries from potential guests for IPNE’s three live-streaming YouTube shows, Ask the Experts, Face The Book TV (authors & book reviews) and IPNE Office Hours (daily drop-in and Q&A for members), produced in collaboration with IPNE. She is the former managing editor for Home Office Computing Magazine (Scholastic) in New York, and started in publishing as a regional editor for Outdoor Empire Publishing in Seattle.
Charlotte grew up on a small farm in Eastern Washington and is an avid sculler (rower). She enjoys hiking, geocaching, language learning, adventure travel, fiber arts, and all manner of crafting & making. She graduated from the University of Washington (BA cum laude) and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government (Master’s in Public Administration, 1992).
