We champion authors, shaping and sharing writing that sparks thoughts, dreams, conversations and learning. We do it because books expand our imaginations and empathy, and help us make sense of different perspectives. Books have the power to bring generations and cultures together.
We work hard to find writing that entertains, educates and excites readers, inspires those that may have lapsed to pick up a book again, and encourages people to start reading. Then we work tirelessly to put those words into the hands of readers everywhere.
Here, we explain some of the ways we work with our authors to publish their books. Our Getting Published blog also contains more advice and tips for new writers.
Please note: We generally do not currently accept 'blind' submissions directly from writers; we only accept submissions directly from agents. Penguin Ireland are currently accepting submissions from Irish writers – find out more here.
