Work with Podium

We are thrilled to be partnered with some of the top creators in modern audio storytelling.

Independent audiobook publishing is core to the DNA of our company: while we do consider submissions from literary agents and managers, we’re proud that the vast majority of our title acquisitions are independently published by extraordinarily talented authors through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing platform.

Therefore, if you are new to us and would like to have your work or manuscript considered for publication by Podium, we recommend that you first publish your book on Kindle, then submit it to us through the author form below.

Similarly, while we do work with select talent agents and managers, we also enthusiastically partner with performers directly. We’re always looking for new, professional audiobook performers: if you’d like to submit a link to your website or sample page, please do so through the narrator form below.
