We are a full-service independent literary agency, based in New York.
We represent literary and commercial fiction and a wide range of
non-fiction, including biography, history, memoir and narrative, business and popular science. Our authors include creative writers, established journalists, and academics. We are selective in who we represent, with the emphasis on the quality of the writing.

We work alongside clients through every step of the publishing process, from the seed of an idea and the first contract negotiation, to watching over marketing and promotion, and to keeping the book in print many years later.

We want our writers’ work to reach the widest possible audience, and we handle excerpts, magazine writing, speaking engagements, and the sale of foreign, film/TV, audio and other subsidiary rights. The agency works with carefully chosen co-agents to represent translation rights in foreign territories, and to sell to film and television.

We have close relationships with leading agencies in the UK, and represent a number of British writers in the US and Canada. The majority of our writers, however, are based in the US.

The agency represents the Boston-based agency Kneerim & Williams’s authors in the UK & British Commonwealth.

We look forward to hearing from you.
