Today I wanted to tell you about a really exciting new project from Random House UK, called Penguin Platform, a new online community for 16-19 year olds to call their own, where they can share and discover the stories that they love.
Operating across Tumblr, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, the content will feature insights from leading ‘Young Adult’ titles, as well as crossover and adult books.
Here is what Random House UK has to say about Penguin Platform
Based on extensive research with young people and named by readers themselves, Penguin Platform is a place for Penguin Random House to talk directly to UK teens about the books they’re reading, deliver exciting experiences around authors, and build on the phenomenal success of its ‘Young Adult’ publishing.
Through branded spaces on Tumblr, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, Penguin Platform gives readers access to an unrivalled list of authors and an ‘inside look’ into the publishing process; the story behind the story. Bespoke book-related content and experiences, shaped by the tastes and preferences of the teen audience, will include author interviews and Q&A, beginning with Owen Jones and Sally Green; home tours with authors including David Hofmeyr; writing advice as well as playlists and book recommendations from authors
Penguin platform’s YouTube channel is especially cool. They have lots of awesome authors on their for interviews and some pretty funny videos. Today I have author of Half Bad and Half Wild, Sally Green here to let you get to know her better and watch her hilariously rate “random objects” I love her!
