Lucy Buxton

Editorial Assistant

I graduated with a BA in Classics and German from the University of Oxford in 2022. Studying a foreign language facilitated my first foray into the publishing world when I worked as both an intern and, later, an author and proofreader for Westermann Gruppe, an educational publishing company in Germany. As the Editorial Assistant, I primarily support Natalie on the Britannica Books imprint. I love the variety the job entails: it requires me to be meticulous yet creative and enables me to meet so many fascinating people. That I end up with beautifully crafted books to show for all the hard work is an added bonus! Outside of work, I can tend to be found reading, embroidering, wreaking havoc in the kitchen, playing with our family cat, Maisy, or stomping around in the great outdoors.
