List of Young Adult and New Adult Literary Publishers image

Young Adult (YA) and New Adult (NA) are two of the newest mainstream genres that have grown significantly in the past few years.

With blockbuster books like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Ready Player One, many authors, literary agents, and publishers see YA and NA as a big opportunity for the next great hit. Successful young adult and new adult novels like these also tend to make great movies with big box office numbers as well, so even big distributors and content producers like Amazon and Netflix are extremely interested in the next great high concept YA or NA story for film or TV.

So, if you’ve written a YA or NA novel, you’re in luck, because there are now more eyes than ever for these hot new book genres.

And there are also more publishers seeking young adult and new adult submissions than ever before.
