Writers

Along with the majority of publishing houses, at Penguin Random House we do not accept unsolicited manuscripts and almost everything that we publish is acquired through recognised literary agents. As such, unfortunately we cannot accept submissions, manuscripts or book proposals over email.

If you’d like more information on literary agents or more insight into the publishing process and where to begin, please visit our Getting Published hub which has a wealth of information for both unpublished and published writers.

A list of writing prizes and opportunities, both from Penguin Random House and other organisations, is available here
