Four Freedom Publishing is intentionally kept small in order to provide direct, personal contact with all its authors. We recognize that writers wish to gain access to the largest possible worldwide markets. Therefore, we are pleased to formally announce The Agency.
The Agency division of Four Freedom takes full advantage of our global contacts at large and mid-sized houses alike. These include the major publishers in the UK, the United States of America, and Canada as well as Ireland.
Our Promises, Your Advantage:
The Agency makes three promises:
- We limit our client list to 10 authors only. That way the same personal treatment we offer our authors we can extend to our clients.
- Most agencies charge 15% of a writer’s revenue. We consider that too high a percentage. The Agency will only charge you 10%.
- You will retain copyright control of your work and should you ever wish to leave for a different agency, you are free to do so. Your complete satisfaction is the only criteria that matters.
Who We Are Looking For:
We are looking for experienced writers with some professional experience in paid work. That said, outstanding new talents will be considered.
The following genres will be considered: both long and short narrative fiction, poetry, drama, journalism, and academic works.
