Celina Sun, Assistant Editor

Celina Sun is an assistant editor at Penguin Workshop, where she edits the Who HQ graphic novel line as well as select illustrated fiction. Celina looks to champion joyful, escapist stories by underrepresented voices that capture all the tender and thorny emotions of growing up, falling in love, and navigating evolving relationships with friends, family, and oneself. 

She’s especially drawn to voice-y, character-driven commercial middle grade and YA in the contemporary realistic and fantasy spaces, as well as picture books and graphic novels that take full advantage of their format. She’d love to see fresh takes on beloved tropes, irresistible characters, and sparkly, propulsive writing.
