The North was founded in October 2017 by a group of agents with decades of experience in the book world: not only as agents, but as booksellers and publishers – and even a writer. We’re a small agency, but we think our list of best-sellers and award winners shows that we punch above our weight. In a business dominated by large London publishers and agencies, we’re proud to be one of very few literary agencies based in the north; though our reach is global, with writers published in more than 30 territories around the world.
