Of any national literature, "the Augustan age" is considered the period of its highest state of excellence and refinement. The expression originated with the reign of the emperor Augustus, who fostered the golden age of Roman literature.

The August Agency is founded on many of the same principles Augustus set in place to facilitate a stimulating venue where distinguished writers could flourish. More than just another literary management company in the business of selling books to publishers, we approach the industry with a fresh point of view and creative strategies that set us apart from other agencies. As followers of the Code of Ethics of The Association of Authors' Representatives, we firmly believe a literary agent is, among other things, an author's ultimate advocate, anchor, arbitrator, and advisor. At The August Agency, we not only embrace our clients' books but also the writers themselves and their careers.

The August Agency currently has offices in Florida and New York. We actively pursue a diverse array of fiction and nonfiction writers to represent, and accept electronic queries exclusively through our web site, http://www.augustagency.com.
