About the Agency
The Garamond Agency, founded in 1998, represents authors of idea-driven non-fiction. Covering history and science to current affairs and narrative non-fiction, our eclectic list brings big ideas and important voices to print. Based in Washington, DC and the Boston area, we are a full-service literary agency, representing writers, scholars, and journalists.
Our list includes numerous prize-winning and best-selling books. From American and world history, physical and life sciences, technology and information, to psychology, sociology, and general non-fiction, these books bring new ideas to light and offer important and provocative perspectives on the most important questions of the day.
Our services begin with idea and proposal development, and include business representation to publishers, negotiation of contracts for publication and for rights including audio, foreign rights, and motion picture and performance rights, as well as editorial development and marketing strategy.
We collaborate with authors through each stage of the publishing process, to develop book ideas and to presenting themselves and their ideas effectively to publishers and to readers. We represent our clients throughout the world in all languages, media, and territories through an extensive network of subagents.
