Tanenbaum International is a boutique literary agency based in New York City. Our goal is to provide in-depth, personalized service to all our authors, supporting them throughout the publishing process. Being a boutique literary agency with an intentionally small client list allows us to provide more customized services than large literary agencies.

With an increasing demand for manuscripts to be near-perfect when they reach a publisher’s desk, we have shaped our practice to address a wide range of project development needs. We provide comprehensive editorial guidance to help polish and refine work in-house, and can connect our authors with trusted outside designers, illustrators, and editors.

We represent books that we love and are devoted to the clients and projects we represent. We are very selective in the authors we choose, but all of our clients—whether their books are more commercial or more niche—receive an identical level of care and commitment.
