Literary Agency

Helping you succeed.
Observer Member of the Association of Authors’ Agents’
Launching new literary voices...

Beginning as a book packager in the cobbled Old Town of Geneva, Switzerland, today The JQ Literary Agency is nestled in the heart of literary London.


The Agency provides dynamic and collaborative representation for authors of fiction and non-fiction in the UK and beyond. We specialise in packaging books and finding the stories that must be told. For this, we offer ghostwriting and editing services with lively, creative collaboration before selling to market. 

With a small and selective list, at the heart of our representation is verve and dynamism, and the extensive editorial experience that new authors flexing their muscles will value. Contract negotiation, optimum rights-selling management, and career nurturing form the heliograms of our service. We particularly welcome compelling nonfiction in the areas of memoir, sports and lifestyle hacking; commercial literary fiction; fantasy, sci-fi and YA voices.
