2014


Thank you for visiting our website. After conducting a number of workshops on writing for children in Manhattan and one writing workshop online, 3 Literary Agents disbanded at the end of 2013.

Ann Tobias and Anna Olswanger continue to pursue their activities as literary agents, and along with Andrea Cascardi, are open to exploring workshop opportunities both at conferences and online.

Ann heads A Literary Agency for Children's Books, established in Washington D.C. in 1988, now located in New York City. She represents 25 authors and artists of books for children from infancy through adolescence—picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. She has placed her clients' work with HarperCollins, Penguin, Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, Henry Holt, Holiday House, and Houghton Mifflin, among other houses.

Anna launched her own agency Olswanger Literary LLC in 2014 after working nine years at Liza Dawson Associates in New York. Anna specializes in illustrated work, both fiction and nonfiction, for young readers and adults, and in adult nonfiction. She has sold to Balzer & Bray, Bloomsbury, Boyds Mills Press, Delacorte, Chronicle, Dutton, Eerdmans, Greenwillow, Houghton Mifflin, McElderry, Random House, and Sleeping Bear Press. Anna's website is www.olswanger.com. You can view her client list on Pinterest.

Andrea Cascardi is no longer active as an agent and has returned to the publishing side of the business. She is now Managing Director at Egmont Publishing USA. Please visit the website www.egmontusa.com for more information.

Thank you.
