NIPPON LITERARY AGENCY

Our literary department is a team of agents, readers and translators in Sweden and Japan, working together to introduce the best Nordic children’s and young adult literature to the Japanese market. Our strength lies in our well-developed network of contacts, our knowledge of Scandinavian books versus Japanese publishers’ tastes and preferences, and our high level of service.

Even though based in Stockholm, Sweden, we also have extensive experience of working with Japanese publishers and a good understanding of the Japanese market for children’s and young adults literature.
