Teen Lit Publisher Profile – Soho Teen Press


Soho Teen is a small niche publisher based in NYC, that is part of the Soho Press family. They were launched in 2013.

Initially, their list was limited to YA mysteries and thrillers, but they have expanded to novels that include adolescent identity and self-discovery. They only publish 7-10 titles each year, so they are very small.

Their catalog is available on their website as part of the Soho Press online store. There are filters on the site, including one that allows you to see only those books published by Soho Teen.

Their social media presence includes Twitter and Facebook.

Soho Teen has many lesser-known, or new authors, and they promote them on their home page. Better known, and included in their featured authors is Adam Silvera. His book, More Happy Than Not was published by Soho Teen in 2015 and made the New York Times bestseller list, was named Paste Magazine’s #1 YA Novel of 2015, and LA Public Library’s Best Teen Books of 2015.


The New York Times review is here, and Kirkus’ starred review is here. There is a Storify documenting the Tweets when Soho Teen acquired the rights to More Happy Than Not. It’s subtitle is: “Adam Silvera sold his first book to the lucky bastards at Soho Teen. The internet exploded.”

Adam Silvera’s most recent book, They Both Die at the End, was published instead by HarperCollins.



 Silvera, A. (2015). More happy than not. Soho Teen.
