After studying English literature at Oxford, Philippa worked for a literary agency in London, before packing her bags and moving to India for a placement at Random House. Currently, she is the Delhi-based representative of Lightning Source, Ingram’s Print on Demand distribution platform. Philippa’s role is within content acquisition; her mission is to assist Indian publishers with distributing their titles across the world via Lightning Source’s global single copy printing facilities. She helps to spare publishers from the headaches associated with freight charges, overstocks and unfamiliar markets through the storage of PDF files rather than physical inventory. Through Lightning Source publishers maintain their rights, access new markets and boost the availability of their titles– reaching countless new readers across the world.
