Polly Osborn, Publishing Strategy & Communications Director, Adult Publishing

Polly joined Simon & Schuster in 2019 as Marketing & Publicity Director, having worked at Penguin Random House and HarperCollins previously. She have been lucky enough to work with extraordinary authors on brilliant books throughout her career and Simon & Schuster is no exception. From Philippa Gregory to Dave Grohl and everyone in between, her job is to tell the world about our authors and share the wonderful experience of reading our books.

Working as a publicist and marketer is a lot of fun, especially when she gets to do so with some of the best professionals in the business. The Simon & Schuster marketing and publicity team is an award-winning team at the top of its game, with unmatched creativity, sensitivity and enthusiasm. We work hard to building and develop relationships across the industry, the media, booksellers and more to ensure our books get to the top of their piles, all whilst maintaining the highest level of author care.

Polly cares passionately about creating a working environment that is dignified and respectful for all and a publishing programme which reflects the community we live in.
