Founded on the principles of Southern hospitality, Old North is a full service literary agency dedicated to promoting progressive, creative voices and integrating them into our ongoing cultural discourse by connecting new and exciting authors with the perfect editorial fit.


With experience at some of the most prestigious publishing houses in America, Old North and its agents are uniquely suited to provide ample industry exposure with the rare combination of the personal attention and Southern comfort that larger agencies have lost. The days of careful, intensive editing and meaningful personal relationships have all but disappeared in the world of publishing; it is our intention to bring back those principles on which many a career was founded.

Due to a full client list and personal obligations, Old North is no longer accepting unsolicited queries. If you have submitted a query to the agency and have not heard a response, please consider the matter closed. We apologize for any inconvenience and wish all authors prosperity and good luck.
