The Magpie Blog

I'm chronicling Magpie here; swoop on in!



Magpie is me, Lisette du Plessis, and I’m on a mission to do my bit to make the world a wee bit better – by building a crowdpublishing community that produces beautiful pulp that matters.

I’m an editor (of beautiful books) and now publisher, previously a lawyer and design studio manager, and a daughter, sister, wife, friend and mum. I live in Auckland, New Zealand. Although it’s just me in the Magpie nest for now, I am privileged to be supported by a dedicated group of talented collaborators, contractors and advisors.
