Located in Vannes, Western France and in Lille, Northern France, Leor literary agency is a foreign and domestic rights agency. We work on a behalf of more than 25 French publishers and promote their most promising titles on the international literary scene. We are primarily specialized in commercial fiction and children’s books but are proud to represent a selection of interesting literary fiction, graphic novels, and non-fiction titles.
By selling translation rights on behalf of their clients, our agents aim to promote French excellence around the world and ensure the highest level of performance as they prospect new deals for publishers and writers alike. French literature thrives far beyond the country’s borders, particularly when it comes to children’s books, comics, and fiction.
We believe that the most original creations come from independent publishers. The ambition and high standards of publishing houses such as Locus Solus, Apogée, and la Pimpante have caught the eye of foreign publishers and prompted a deep interest in independent French press. Leor Literary Agency is proud to represent such a range of dynamic publishers and promote French culture overseas.
We work with over 60 countries and 4,000 buyers around the world and collaborate with a network of more than 15 co-agents and sub-agents.
Literary Agency goes beyond its role of representing independent publishers and acts as international literary scout for them. Our agents are therefore always on the lookout for excellent literary projects from around the globe to introduce them to. (Please note that we do not take on authors directly. We only work with international publishers and agencies).
We furthermore represent a selection of international publishers on the French market and seek out French publishing houses interested in having their books translated and published.
