The greatest stories are yet to be told.

London based publisher Pen Works Media

Who we are

Pen Works Media is an independent publishing company based in London with a focus on creating works of global appeal, enduring quality and originality.

Mission statement

To seek, educate and nurture talent in both literature and screenwriting, creating and publishing original works that will challenge and alter people’s perceptions of the world.

How we do this

We’re always creating new work to strengthen our position in the publishing sector, and we’re a modern publisher who not only adores the art of traditional paperback publishing, but we embrace entrepreneurial methods of getting stories to readers, too.

Our aim

We enjoy meeting writers, distributors and book buyers to discuss ways of getting the best new content into the hands of the readers who want it. We even love talking to fellow publishers to compare ways of seeking world dominance, so building a strong network across the entire sector is hugely important to us. Whoever you are, we hope our paths cross soon.


Publishing plans for 2017

Being the innovative bunch that we are, we’re on the verge of launching our first “find your own fate” book where your choices dictate the outcome in our epic 1940’s detective story, The Somerton Man.

We’re also looking forward to flying New York author Elana A. Mugdan back to the UK this September, where she’ll be performing live readings of Dragon Speaker, which is definitely not to be missed!

To receive company updates, and to get a FREE digital copy of Elana A. Mugdan’s brilliant novella The Champion’s Squire, take 20 seconds out of your day to join our mailing list.
