Following recent internal promotions within the editorial team, independent publisher Broadsheet Media has announced the appointment of Emma Joyce in the newly created position of National Assistant Editor.

Joyce’s hire will allow Broadsheet to further strengthen its position as Australia’s leading cultural publication.

Joyce has more than 10 years experience working in arts and lifestyle publications. She has held positions as editor of Time Out Sydney and branded content editor at Concrete Playground, as well as written for media outlets including the Guardian Australia and ABC Arts.

Last year Broadsheet Media announced a round of internal promotions designed to emphasise its national editorial strategy and help realise its video and audio ambitions.

That included the promotion of Sarah Norris into the newly created position of national editor (Norris was Broadsheet Sydney’s editor from 2017), tasked with executing the publication’s overarching national strategy, with local city editions and interpretations.

Former Melbourne editor, Ellen Fraser, was also appointed as executive producer to drive exceptional production across editorial and branded content in video and audio.

Publisher and founder Nick Shelton says these appointments helped contribute to the publication’s successfully navigation of the challenges presented by COVID-19.

Norris is excited to welcome Joyce to the team as it will allow the publication to continue to break new ground and maintain its deep connection with, and commitment to, city news and culture.

“For more than 10 years, Broadsheet has been an essential guide to Australia’s cities (and beyond), and has enriched the lives of our readers by connecting them with the best cultural and community experiences.”

“We’ve seen our national audience grow, and our engagement with our readers continue to strengthen. Emma will help us forge new storytelling formats and create engaging and high utility content for the millions who come to the publication each month.”

Joyce said, “it’s an exciting time for Broadsheet Media, which has attracted such a talented team of writers and editors over the last decade and is planning to grow even more.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining the team to help share even more insightful stories about the best things people can do in their cities, whether that’s dining at the newest restaurant in town or getting a first look into the next buzzy arts event in their neighbourhood.”

With Fraser leading the video team, it has produced a number of successful projects, including the online film of Chae – a six-seat Korean restaurant in a tiny inner-city Melbourne apartment.

“The video not only reinforces Broadsheet’s storytelling capabilities, it’s reflective of the ambition of the video production department, with a focus on authentic human stories. The team is taking pitches from filmmakers and talent with stories relevant to Broadsheet’s audience in the food and drink, fashion, travel, art and design spaces,” said Fraser.
