Margery Cuyler, formerly v-p of the children's publishing group and director of trade publishing at Golden Books, is leaving the financially troubled publisher to join the new book and Internet publishing firm Winslow Press.

Cuyler has been named v-p, editor-in-chief of the Delray Beach, Fla. -- based Winslow Press and will operate out of its new New York City offices. Cuyler told PW that she was excited about the "synergies between Winslow's publishing program and their Web site." She noted that it was difficult to leave Golden so soon, but she thought the continued financial uncertainties at the company were "not a good environment" for attracting authors and artists.

Before joining Golden, Cuyler worked for 21 years at Holiday House and at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers as an associate publisher.

Diane Kessenich, publisher of Winslow Press, told PW that Winslow, which launched its first list at last year's BEA (News, Aug. 17, 1998), "now has a solid team in place."
