We are a boutique literary agency, offering a unique full circle approach to literary representation. Our diverse experience in book publishing includes editorial, marketing, publicity, legal and rights, which we use to help build authors one step at a time. We work with both veteran and debut writers and artists and our team has a knack for finding and developing new and diverse talent. Our titles have received awards and honors from the American Library Association, National Book Critics' Circle, Children's Book Council, Society of Children's Books Writers & Illustrators, National Council of Teachers of English, International Reading Association, Pura Belpre Award and Honors, Americas Book Award, and Charlotte Zolotow Award. Our authors have been featured on National Public Radio, Good Morning America, Martha Stewart Living, Design*Sponge, Ohdeedoh, Working Mother magazine, Parents magazine, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and other national media.
Full Circle Literary works with a variety of creative prescriptive and narrative nonfiction books, literary fiction for adults and teens, as well as middle grade and children's picture books. Our underlying policy is that we only sign work we are as enthusiastic about as you are. We'll support you through the publication process... full circle.
