Marketing Department

The Marketing Department handles all functions of selling and promoting books, both domestically and overseas, including events, reviews, publicity, catalogs, awards, email marketing, social media, and more. Our efforts include managing rights and permissions and maintaining sales relationships with aggregators, libraries, and course adoption partners. 

If you are an author or volume editor, you may find more information on these activities in our Marketing Guide.  

Please note: We are the Marketing Department for the University of Pennsylvania Press (Penn Press), a scholarly publishing company housed within the University of Pennsylvania. We do not have any involvement with marketing efforts for the University as a whole. Please contact a member of the University Communications staff for information about general University of Pennsylvania marketing and communications.
