Scott Moyers Named Publisher of Penguin Press

Editor-turned-literary agent Scott Moyers will now serve as publisher of Penguin Press. From 2003 to 2007, Moyers worked as an editor at the same imprint. He left to run the New York office of The Wylie Agency.

The imprint plans to expand its yearly list from 42 titles to at least 62. According to The New York Times, the expansion is part of what drew Moyers to return to Penguin Press. This also means that the current publisher Ann Godoff will become editor-in-chief and Andrew Wylie will take Moyers’ clients.

Here’s more from the article: “In some respects, Mr. Moyers will return to Penguin a much more valuable asset than before. As a literary agent, he has learned about every publishing program in the business and brokered deals with a wide range of publishers. At Penguin, it is possible that he will work on books that he sold to the publisher as an agent.”
