The agency was founded by longstanding editor and publisher Marcel Hartges in Munich in January 2016. Ferdinand von Schirach, Alissa Walser, Jan Weiler, Volker Klüpfel & Michael Kobr, Albert Ostermaier and Anne Gesthuysen were among the first authors to join the agency’s books.
We represent authors of fiction and nonfiction books. In addition to sending manuscripts to publishers in Germany and further afield, another key area of our work is in representing our clients’ film rights. More background information is provided in this interview [German].
We cooperate with Kiepenheuer Bühnenvertrieb and various agencies abroad. We will be posting a full list of our cooperating agencies here soon.
