Welcome to Adams Literary!

Adams Literary is a full-service, boutique literary agency exclusively representing children's and young adult authors and artists. Founded by Tracey and Josh Adams, Adams Literary prides itself on nurturing the creativity of its clients and maintaining close relationships with editors and publishers in New York City and around the world.

Drawing upon our editorial expertise, knowledge of the industry, and extensive experience in contract negotiations, we provide editorial judgment and input, marketing consultation, rights management and longterm career planning and advice.

Our clients' work ranges from picture books to edgy young adult novels. Sharing our clients' same dedication to children's literature, we are building a community of talented individuals and finding audiences for their work through our affiliations around the world.

While we think of ourselves as matchmakers—connecting authors and artists with editors and publishers, and young readers with unforgettable books—our first priority is to ensure our clients have the peace of mind to concentrate on their characters, not their contracts.
