We are always on the lookout for new voices and good stories. We represent a range of fiction and non-fiction, including literary and commercial fiction, crime, thrillers, narrative non-fiction, memoir, current affairs, personal development, humor, and select young adult with crossover appeal. We work extensively with our clients throughout the publishing process to ensure close follow-through on all projects, and have a strong focus on all rights including translation, film, television, and audio.
Along with the SLA list, the New York office also sells North American rights on behalf of London-based David Godwin Associates, Toby Mundy Associates, and Galley Beggar Press.
