Le Monte-charge culturel supports writers in the different aspects of their work. With a anglo-saxon approach, we work on the manuscripts with authors, especially debut novelists, before starting to look for a publisher. We seek the most suitable publishing house for each writer and negotiate the terms of the publishing contract.

The agency also ensures the sale of foreign rights, with the help of a network of sub-agents who represent our catalog of titles in more than 20 countries. We work with Deborah Druba Agency for Dutch and Hebrew rights, Grayhawk Agency for China and Taiwan, So Far So Good for Scandinavia, Iceland, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia and Liepman Literary Agency for Germany. We also manage adaptation rights (theater, cinema, graphic novel…).

Finally, we support writers in all the projects they wish to undertake that will amplify their unique voice and singular way of thinking.
