August Employee Spotlight: Will Wolfslau, Editorial Director

At Amplify Publishing Group, our commitment to excellence is epitomized by our dedicated and skilled team, working seamlessly across all facets of our organization to give life to exceptional books.

In this month’s spotlight, we proudly introduce Will Wolfslau, our remarkable Editorial Director. Boasting an impressive career journey through renowned institutions such as Gotham Ghostwriters, Penguin Random House, and Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Will brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to both our team and the authors we serve.

We are grateful to have Will as a member of APG and look forward to having you get to know him better below. 

Describe your role at Amplify Publishing Group.

Will: As editorial director, I work with prospective authors to hone their book concept and develop their publishing plan. Some authors come to us with a manuscript more-or-less ready to print; with others, we develop their idea through a months-long collaboration.

What’s one thing that surprised you about your position?

Will: A big part of my role is educating people about the publishing industry and the economics of selling books. But I’m continually surprised and delighted to see how book-savvy many of our authors already are.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Will: For anyone in publishing, the ultimate satisfaction is seeing finished copies of a book that’s been months or even years in the making. I only joined the team a few months ago, so I’m eagerly awaiting the publication dates of the first authors I’ve worked with here.

What are you currently reading?

Will: I just finished James Clear’s Atomic Habits, which is terrific! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many concrete, actionable tools and techniques in one book.

What is something you’ve learned in the last week?

Will: I’ve learned how to change a diaper while a child is upright and moving away from you. (My daughter is learning to walk and will no longer countenance the changing table.)

What is the best piece of career advice you’ve ever received?

Will: Don’t focus on what you need but on how you can serve others. It sounds like an exercise in self-sacrifice, but when you’re truly helpful to others – your clients, your boss, your colleagues – you quickly become invaluable to them.
