Please note: I get so much email that it’s impossible for me to respond to most of it! (If I did, I’d have no time to actually, you know, make anything.) It’s nice to hear from readers and fans, and I read everything, but I just can’t write back to everyone. Forgive me in advance.
To invite me to speak at your event, contact Paige Russell at Leigh Bureau by phone at 1-908-253-6047 or by email: [email protected].
For rights inquiries, my literary agent is Ted Weinstein.
If your book or calendar has a physical defect (as opposed to an intellectual one, which is my fault), contact Workman’s customer service department at 1-800-722-7202 or [email protected].
For everything else, shoot an email to me directly: [email protected]

I love getting new books and other goodies in the mail, but please keep in mind that I am not a professional book reviewer. I only share things that I genuinely like, and I am under no obligation to write about, blog, promote, or even acknowledge the receipt of things people send me. Also, I’m not a creative writing professor or a literary critic, so I don’t give out notes, or tell people if their work is any good. Don’t send me unpublished manuscripts or anything that needs returned. If you’re dying to hear back from me, you can increase the likelihood I’ll write back by sending a self-addressed and stamped envelope.
Students: Pretend I’m dead!
Students! I love you, but, unfortunately, I can’t answer questions for your projects. If you have a question about my work, the best thing to do is research me as if I’ve been dead for a while. Read my books, check out my interviews, watch videos, Google me, etc. (And feel free to share this policy with your teacher!) A good place to start your research is my about page — there’s a ton of information there.
If you’re looking for advice, all the advice I have to give about getting started and getting your work out there is in my books, Steal Like An Artist and Show Your Work! I also blog a lot about my process, so try poking around in the blog archives. You can also check my old office hours.
I’m on Twitter too much, so if you have a super-short question or you just want to say hello: @austinkleon
