OUR WRITERS MEAN EVERYTHING TO US

About us

The Golden Quill Literary Agency works both with Fiction and Non-Fiction books.

We represent a large variety of novels: Thriller, Horror, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Women’s Fantasy, Historical. We also accept books about Politics, History, Self-Help, and Poetry.

Golden Quill UK was opened as the subsidiary of Golden Quill US in 2017. Only two people were dealing with the big volume of work coming every week, but thanks to their perseverance and the great work of our authors, we were able to expand their small team.

In Golden, Quill Literary has been closely working with our writers and publishing houses across the country. Since the creation of the company in 2016, we also have another subsidiary in Spain, and we hope to open the next one in Russia at any time this year.
