Foreign Rights Representation

We provide foreign rights representation for publishers, literary agents and a select number of authors from around the world

With offices in California and Europe, 2 Seas Agency sells foreign rights worldwide or into specific territories, according to our clients’ needs.

Thanks to over 25 years of combined experience on both sides of the Atlantic and in Asia, our team has an in-depth knowledge of foreign publishing. Our regular visits to international book fairs and publishing cities allow us to build and maintain close ties with publishers, agents, literary scouts and translators around the world.
