Folio Literary Management places both fiction and non-fiction with major publishers throughout the U.S. and around the world. We represent many first-time authors, some of whom have gone on to become bestsellers and major award-winners. We also represent many well-established authors, and work closely with them to take their careers to new heights. Folio is proud to offer a full complement of literary services in a changing publishing landscape, and provide our clients with access to marketing services, website development, and media training that it takes to make each book a success.  We are dedicated to supporting authors across all platforms, from film adaptation to enhanced e-books and apps.  Although each agent has particular likes and dislikes, certain criteria make a project/author particularly well suited for Folio:

Fiction: We are aggressively seeking upmarket adult fiction that’s appropriate for book club discussion; literary fiction and commercial fiction that features fresh voices and/or memorable characters.

Nonfiction: Many of us love narrative nonfiction – great stories paired with great writing – including memoirs – but also authors, experts, scholars, and journalists with well-researched, compelling and new ideas.  We love authors who are ready and able to promote their work and expertise in all forms of media. 

Folio Jr, the division of Folio Literary Management devoted exclusively to the representation of today’s most stellar children’s book authors and artists, is wholly committed to offering our clients 360º of impeccable, hands-on care.  We strive not only to find the most un-put-down-able new voices and the most can’t-take-your-eyes-off-it new styles of illustration, but also to guide our established writers and illustrators to new heights in their publishing careers.
