Shared Stories is the rights agency of many publishing houses, among which Luitingh-Sijthoff, De Fontein, Kosmos, Ten Have, Houtekiet, Kok, AnkhHermes, Borgerhoff & Lamberigts and Alfabet Uitgevers.
Since 2013, Shared Stories represents the translation rights, as well as the tv, film and stage rights of Dutch and Flemish authors such as Herman Koch, Geert Mak, Dimitri Verhulst, Eline Snel, Bert Wagendorp, Esther Verhoef, Dick Swaab and many others. ith a firm focus on rights sales, we have embarked on an adventure that is entirely consistent with the entrepreneurial spirit of the publishers it represents. We do not translate the works ourselves, but we do business with publishers abroad who get the chance to publish the book in their own country.
Interested to see the great authors we represent? Please visit our ‘authors’ page or take a look at our rights brochures of the Frankfurter Buchmesse, the London Book Fair and the Bologna Book Fair.
