Author Rights Agency
Author Rights Agency creates an effective literary bridge between USA and Europe. Based in Dublin, with its strong tradition for creative writing and its deep historical links with America, and in Paris, a major European and world cultural, business and literary centre, this agency has well-established connections throughout the world.
We connect authors and their creative works directly to the world of book publishing and other media (newspapers, magazines, audio, TV & film, broadcast, electronic publishing), selling, on their behalf, rights of all kinds in their original language and in translation.
We currently concentrate on creative fiction and non-fiction of literary quality in many forms: literary fiction (contemporary and historical subjects), crime and ‘noir’, women’s fiction, non-fiction with a universal interest.
Our focus initially is representing Irish, British and American writers to the world market. We also represent publishers and agents for French and Russian translation rights.
