How can I contact an author? _ +

Some authors have email addresses, contact forms, or publicity addresses on their personal websites, which we may link to on the author's detail page. You may also write to an author in care of their publicity department, using the following address formats:

For Penguin Young Readers authors:
[Author's Name]
Penguin Group
c/o [Imprint Name] Publicity
1745 Broadway
New York, NY 10019

If you are unsure where to send your letter, please email with the title of the book and author's name and we will confirm the proper address.

Our website only includes information about young adult books and authors currently published by Penguin and available for order (including back order and pre-order) in the United States. We do not have online catalog information for out-of-print titles or works published by other Penguin Random House publishers worldwide.

I'm interested in doing an internship with Penguin Teen. How do I apply? _ +

We are always looking for book lovers who want to work with us at Penguin Teen! Our interns come to us via the Penguin Random House internship program. Penguin Random House offers paid internship opportunities in both Adult & Children’s divisions in business areas such as contracts, editorial, finance, graphic design, managing editorial, marketing, online marketing, production, publicity, sales, subsidiary rights, and operations. Internships are available during the spring, summer, and fall, with each session lasting 10 weeks, at the NYC offices. For more information, and to apply for an internship, please visit



I have written a novel and would like to submit it to Penguin Teen for publication. How do I do that? _ +

Penguin Random House does not accept unsolicited submissions, proposals, manuscripts, illustrations, artwork, or submission queries at this time. This includes submission of work previously published elsewhere. We are also unable to provide draft support, translation, or ghostwriters for aspiring authors.

If you would like to have your work or manuscript considered for publication by a major book publisher, we recommend that you work with an established literary agent. Each agency has manuscript submission guidelines.

You may wish to refer to The Literary MarketPlace (the LMP), a reference guide that contains a listing of literary agencies. It can be found in most libraries. Another excellent source is The Writer's Market, which you should be able to find in a local bookstore or library. You can also visit their Web site at for more information.
