Charis Palmer (photo credit: Schwartz Media)Schwartz Media, publisher of The Monthly and The Saturday Paper, is to launch a new title covering energy policy, which will be headed up by Charis Palmer, formerly of The Conversation, Business Spectator, and iTNews.

Palmer finished up with The Conversation recently, where she was Deputy Editor, Chief of Staff, and Head of Digital Strategy. She's now taken on the job of launching the new energy-sector title for Schwartz.

The publication, which has yet to be formally announced, joins the stable of titles backed by entrepreneur Morry Schwartz, which includes Black Inc Books, the Quarterly Essay, Australian Foreign Affairs (Schwartz Publishing), The Monthly, and The Saturday Paper (Schwartz Media), and La Trobe University Press.

It won’t be the first launch effort for Palmer, who previously ran her own B2B publishing and events business, Banking Review Media, which included a subscription publication widely adopted by the retail banking sector.

She was also the founding editor of Technology Spectator, a Business Spectator spin-off that focused on enterprise technology.
