One of the first full-service literary agencies committed to children’s books, Writers House began representing illustrators in the early 1980s. Our agents are devoted to discovering new talent, cultivating illustrators’ strengths and ideas, and actively making publishers aware of their work. We are adept at working with artists to develop author-illustrator projects, as well as handling clients’ illustration-only deals. Editors and art directors often think of Writers House illustrators first when they have a manuscript in need of an artist. With a wide-ranging list of illustrators, viewable on our dedicated art site, we have developed expertise in all facets of the business, including (but not limited to) picture books, graphic novels, cover art, and interior illustration.
