IMG, the largest sports and entertainment marketing company in the world, acquired the prestigious Julian Bach Literary Agency in 1992, and with it, an illustrious history of authors and books that extends more than 50 years. Now known as IMG Literary, the agency offers the resources of a large company blended with the attentiveness of a boutique agency.

Our agency works closely with its authors to develop, edit, and fine-tune proposals, cultivate quality manuscripts, sell works to the highest bidder, and market and promote books once they’ve hit the marketplace. Our agents are uniquely collaborative, sharing information and expertise as well as ideas and industry connections, giving our clients uncommon support and guidance.
IMG Literary’s staff has exceptional marketing, publicity and editorial experience. While very selective in what we take on, we are vigorous in promoting all our authors, committing to the long-term guidance and management of a writer’s career.

To assist clients in their pursuits, IMG Literary has access to IMG’s Speakers Bureau, Licensing division, marketing prowess, television production and representation arms, as well as numerous Hollywood scouts and agents to assist with sales of film and television rights.

IMG Literary has represented best-selling books in the areas of business, sports, narrative non-fiction, celebrity autobiography, cooking, self-help, literary fiction, children’s, photography, health/fitness, and humor. The agency is also noted for its international rights department, which has strong ties in the international literary community. IMG Literary’s network of co-agents encompasses Europe, Asia, and Latin America, and these relationships have steadily borne fruit for our clients, whose works have sold in territories around the world.

Our clients have ranged from best-selling and award-winning journalists to celebrities, academics, novelists, memoirists, biographers, historians, and humorists.
