Ameya Nagarajan is an editor at Penguin India. She mainly commissions to Inked, Penguin’s YA imprint, but also works with quirky non-fiction and adult science fiction and fantasy. Her main intent with Inked is to build a strong and active list that publishes YA books that are of international standard. There is also no shortage of excellent writers in English in India, and they certainly write across genres—yet everything we see in the YA space is imported. Ameya wants to create a space for those excellent Indian voices that tend to be overlooked by mainstream publishing.
