Who we are
AC² is a new literary agency based in Italy, focused on representing quality fiction and non-fiction works for adults, YA and children.
Our decision to embark on agenting was motivated by the crucial developments taking place in the publishing world today. As widely known, the landscape is changing fast while the future remains unpredictable. We belong to the first generation of digital natives and aspire to make the best use of our IT skills and Web 2.0 savvy in the literary world. We have valuable experience as publishing house insiders with hands-on knowledge of publishing procedures. Our strength lies in our know-how and passion, indispensable for agenting that is effective, qualified and fruitful.
AC² was founded in the twenty-first century and well aware of the pivotal role played by pop culture in this age. Our Agency embraces the strong influence of music, cinema, contemporary art, design and IT in its vision of the world and of literature.
We strive to pitch books and authors to the best possible publishers, to the ones “best suited” in each case. We offer customized “matchmaking” between writers and publishers and excel at finding that winning partnership you are looking for. A publisher or agency entrusting their catalogue to AC² can rest assured that we will select the most suitable outlet for their books, based on our vast knowledge of Italian publishing houses and catalogues, not to mention our continuous working relationship with their staff.
AN ECO-FRIENDLY AND FAST AGENCY
Time is of essence and AC², via the use of electronic media, is an agency which works fast. AC² is also an eco-friendly agency which has adopted a lean approach and believes “the less paper, the better”.
