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. For contact information and websites for other Penguin Random House publishers, visit global.penguinrandomhouse.com.
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. For more information, and to apply for an internship, please visit PRH.com.
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 www.writersdigest.com for more information.
