Artellus Ltd has been operating as an international literary agency since 1986, representing writers in all fields. Our authors include historians, scientists, economists, investigative journalists and writers on culture, fashion and food.

We handle a wide range of fiction, from literary to fantasy and sci-fi, encompassing crime writing and fiction for young adults. We are also interested in fine writers in translation.

Submission enquiries from new fiction and non-fiction writers are welcomed. Please first email an enquiry and synopsis to and if it sounds like a good fit we’ll be glad to invite a full manuscript by post or electronically.

We represent writers to the world, handling book volume rights and associated rights – to periodicals, film and TV, radio, and merchandising. We do not handle film or television scripts.

Our writers live in the USA, Europe, and Asia. The common denominator is that we are partial to their work. We are a full service agency, with colleagues based in all parts of the world, unless we handle rights directly in consultation with our writers.

We are a liaison office for several Italian periodicals.
