C is for Clevedon. Clevedon is a small seaside town in North Somerset, UK and is where the first Multilingual Matters/Channel View Publications offices were located. We moved to Bristol in 2008 and as such any book published since 2008 should be referenced as published in Bristol. It’s amazing how often people get this wrong and still put Clevedon in their references!

Last week we celebrated my 10 year anniversary of working for Channel View/Multilingual Matters. My super-wonderful colleagues (especial thanks to Laura and Ellie!) made the day very special for me (with the help of one of our printers, Short Run Press) with lots of surprises including a book cover all about me (in the style of the series I commission for – Tourism and Cultural Change) that was very cool and exciting!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since my first day in Clevedon. Mike, Marjukka and Ken were great to work for and I’ve been lucky to work with so many lovely people, both within MM/CV and all the academics and suppliers we’ve worked with over the years.
Tommi, Anna, Ellie, Laura and Martisse are amazing people to work with every day and I’m looking forward to the next 10 years 🙂
