Introducing #Merky Books

#Merky Books is a new imprint within Penguin Random House UK, dedicated to publishing the best new fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Curated by Stormzy, and launching with his first book Rise Up in November 2018, #Merky Books will publish two to three books per year, and form a home for a new generation of voices.

Future initiatives include an open submission competition to find new works of fiction, non-fiction or poetry, and a paid internship with #Merky Books.

How do I submit work?

#Merky Books is not currently accepting unsolicited submissions. In 2019 we will announce details of an open submission competition for new works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, with the winner receiving a publishing contract with #Merky Books.

How can I work for #Merky Books?

#Merky Books will be offering a paid internship in 2019. Register for the #Merky Books newsletter to receive updates on our internship scheme including details of how to apply.
