For more than two decades now, we at the Swetky Literary Agency have believed in the integrity of that time-honored and hallowed tradition of author, agent, and publisher/producer working together for the benefit of all. Without the author and his very best work, fine literature and outstanding film and television withers and dies on the vine. Without the publisher/producer and his very best efforts, fine authors go unheralded. Without the agent and his most highly refined marketing talents, neither author nor publisher/producer may ever realize how close they had been to literary fruition.
Our goal is to act as sales agent, liaison, contact, negotiator, editorial consultant, and arbiter on behalf of all of our clients and to the benefit of finer literature everywhere. Toward that end, our agency representatives have had many decades of experience in all areas of publishing, film, and literature. They are chosen not only for their knowledge and effectiveness as literary agents, but also for their integrity, moral ethics, and highly professional standards of conduct.
When we make a commitment to our author-clients, we expect that commitment to last a lifetime, building not only a solid, viable working relationship but also a lasting personal friendship.
In addition to representing clients with a combined total of more than a hundred published books to their credits, The Swetky Agency takes pride in seeking out untested, unpublished, first-book authors. Many of these authors have never before had an opportunity for literary agency representation. To them, and to all our authors, we make this solemn pledge:
We will work diligently and tirelessly at representing you and do everything in our power to help you succeed in one of the most competitive environments in the world. You have our word on it.
