Dystel, Goderich & Bourret

Dystel, Goderich & Bourret A dynamic literary agency boasting an impressive client list and a sterling reputatin, we are a full-service enterprise known for our business savvy and integrity. Our agents are smart, hardworking, compassionate, and focused on their authors’ success.
Dystel & Goderich Literary Management was founded in 1994 by Jane Dystel, who has been a respected figure in publishing for over 30 years — first as an editor, then as a publisher, and finally as a savvy and successful agent. The agency is the product of her innovative vision of author representation as a full-service enterprise. DGLM was launched with a quickly growing roster of Pulitzer Prize winning journalists, celebrated experts in fields as diverse as parenting, women's health, and cooking, acclaimed literary and commercial fiction writers, and an eclectic and exciting list of titles. The primary goal of the agency was and is to offer not just financial and contractual advice to its clients, but also editorial guidance and support. Being involved in every stage of putting together a non-fiction book proposal, offering substantial editing on fiction manuscripts, and coming up with book ideas for authors looking for their next project is as much a part of our work as selling, negotiating contracts, and collecting monies for our clients. We follow a book from its inception through its sale to a publisher, its publication, and beyond. Our commitment to our writers does not, by any means, end when we have collected our commission. This is one of the many things that makes us unique in a very competitive business. Another is that we take our unsolicited queries very seriously. As a matter of fact, we have discovered many of our most talented authors in the "slush" pile. We read everything that is sent to us, whether we decide to represent it or not.
