Welcome to Tessler Literary AgencyWe represent a select number of best-selling and emerging authors.
Based in the Flatiron District in Manhattan, we are dedicated to writers of high quality fiction and non-fiction. Our clients include accomplished journalists, scientists, academics, experts in their field, as well as novelists and debut authors with unique voices and stories to tell. We value fresh, original writing that has a compelling point of view.
Our list is diverse and far-reaching. In non-fiction, it includes narrative, popular science, memoir, history, psychology, business, biography, food, and travel. In many cases, we sign authors who are especially adept at writing books that cross many of these categories at once. In fiction, we represent literary, women's, and commercial. We do not take on genre fiction or children's books.
We build careers and advocate for our authors at every stage of the publishing process— helping conceptualize and shape the initial idea, offering editorial feedback before submission, aggressively negotiating the contract, selling film and translation rights, and conceiving of publicity and marketing strategies that will give the book the best chance of reaching a wide audience.
