Founded in 1977, the Frances Goldin Literary Agency is a full-service literary agency based in New York City’s Greenwich Village. We represent only quality fiction and serious, often controversial nonfiction, and have a particular interest in books with a progressive political orientation.

The agency represents over 100 award-winning writers, journalists, scholars, poets and activists. We see ourselves as partners in the development of our author’s writing careers, and work closely with them through all stages of their work, from concept development and proposal preparation to contract negotiation, publicity and marketing. We have an active subsidiary rights department and successful track record in handling foreign, audio, film and television rights. In addition, we are actively involved in finding new digital opportunities for our clients and in helping to develop their online and social media presence to meet the challenges of modern publishing.
