The Daily Writer with Kent Sanders

Hello, listeners of the Smart Business Writing podcast! Thanks so much for listening, and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!

Nov 23, 2022

Have you ever dreamed of sitting down with an editor at one of the big New York publishing houses and asking them all your questions about the publishing process? If so, you’re in luck, because that’s exactly what I did on today’s episode.

I’m excited to bring you this conversation with Noah Schwartzberg, Senior Editor at Portfolio, which is an imprint of Penguin Random House, the biggest publisher in the United States.

Before joining the Portfolio team in 2019, Noah brought over a decade of experience as an acquisitions editor for McGraw-Hill, Cambridge University Press, and Fairchild Books. His areas of focus include business, economics, finance and investing, and politics. His authors run the gamut from generals to journalists, economists to entrepreneurs. He’s especially interested in stories that shine a light on critical but overlooked issues at the intersection of business and society.

Noah shares his journey in the publishing world, what a publisher looks for in a great book concept, the benefits of traditional publishing, and much more.

You can connect with Noah on Twitter or LinkedIn.
