The Mendel Media Group LLC is an independent literary agency in New York.  We
represent nonfiction writers in most subject areas, from biography and serious
history to health and relationships.  Our nonfiction clientele includes individual
authors and institutions whose works, collections, archives, researchers and/or
policy experts contribute to important public discussions and debates.  We also
represent more light-hearted nonfiction projects, when they suit the market
particularly well.  The agency's fiction writers principally write historical and
contemporary multicultural fiction, contemporary thrillers and mainstream women's

We help our clients develop their projects, and we market those projects to U.S.,
U.K., Australian and foreign language publishing houses.  We negotiate all contracts
to our clients' works and keep track of monies due them, and we serve as their
champions and career advisors.  Both critical and commercial success are as
important to us as they are to our clients.  We want writing to be the source of a
significant portion of our individual clients' incomes. We also want our institutional
clients' works to support their missions financially as well as intellectually.

In addition, wherever possible and preferable we reserve and represent the
subsidiary rights to our clients' properties, including magazine and newspaper
serialization, translation and other foreign rights, film and television development,
audio book, large-print, book club, electronic and merchandising rights.  We always
aim to multiply our clients' incomes by making strategic decisions about licensing
and sub-licensing as many of those rights as possible.

In accordance with the Canon of Ethics of the Association of Authors
Representatives, we charge our clients no reading fees.

We do not represent screenwriters, unless they are creating works derived from a
literary work we have already developed and marketed.
