Marly Rusoff Literary Agency was founded by former bookseller and publishing executive Marly Rusoff, who held Vice Presidential positions at Houghton Mifflin, Doubleday and William Morrow before opening her agency in New York.

With a combination of marketing, publicity, and editorial experience, our staff is well positioned to support authors in all stages of their work, from developing book proposals to overseeing the marketing and promotion of our authors. Years of experience inside the publishing houses themselves allow us to work closely with a wide variety of major presses.

Our Clients

The agency’s clients range from best-selling and award-winning novelists to journalists, biographers, memoirists, and academics—all writers who are passionate about their subjects and want to reach a larger audience. While we are highly selective in the projects we take on, we are vigorous in promoting all our authors. Our greatest commitment is to the long-term guidance and management of a writer’s career.


Our Goal

Our goal is to maintain a small and focused client list, so that we can offer each writer personal attention throughout the publishing process. Although intentionally small in size, we are a full-service agency, with a network of dedicated associates and co-agents for film and international rights serving our clients worldwide.
