Marketing Director

Joanna (Yanna) R. Demkiewicz is the marketing director at Milkweed Editions and former publicist for the press. Prior to joining Milkweed in 2016, she worked as a publicist for the Bryant-Lake Bowl theater and restaurateur Kim Bartmann. For five years, she co-ran a print and digital magazine, The Riveter, which celebrated narratives and journalism by women and nonbinary folx. A graduate of the University of Missouri Journalism School, she also serves as a freelance editor for The Sager Group’s Women in Journalism anthology series and her writing can be found in NylonGuernicaLiterary Hub, and The Los Angeles Review.

I work at Milkweed because I am fueled by our driven, creative staff, and by the important literature we are sharing with the world. I love advocating for books that give readers a new perspective.

Please contact Joanna (Pronounced: Yanna) with any questions about sales, distribution, advertising, and partnership opportunities. Booksellers and librarians, say hi!
