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 speculative, 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 email an enquiry, synopsis, and first three chapters to

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.
