Thompson Literary LLC was formed in 2014 by Meg Thompson.
Meg started in publishing in 2002, working closely with President Bill Clinton in his Harlem office as a researcher and fact checker on his memoirs, My Life. She then went to work for Charlie Rose as a writer and researcher at his legendary PBS show before joining LJK Literary Management, LLC in 2005. She worked at LJK for six years, becoming a senior agent in only 2 years, before founding her own agency with Susanna Einstein, the Einstein Thompson Agency.
After three successful years at Einstein Thompson, Meg decided to launch her own agency, Thompson Literary LLC. In this exciting new venture, Meg and her colleagues will continue to be attentive to their clients' needs for the life of their books, from developing ideas and editing manuscripts, to placing books with the best publishers, to working with the publisher on all aspects of a project, including editorial, design, marketing, publicity, and sales.
Thompson Literary represents a diverse list of authors. The agency is always on the lookout for both commercial and literary fiction, as well as young adult and children's books. Nonfiction, however, is our specialty, and our interests include biography, memoir, music, popular science, politics, blog-to-book projects, cookbooks, sports, health and wellness, fashion, art, and popular culture.
