Corto Literary Agency represents some of the best and most prestigious writers from South-Eastern Europe, i.e. the Balkans. It is a territory of diversity; an intersection of various cultures, traditions and practices, a territory that pulsates with creativity and variety.


Our mission is to choose only the finest and the most valuable in our pursuit to bring this talent closer to the international reading audience, to contribute to the open world of new stories, new voices and new ideas that can enrich and change us.

Besides representing authors from the Balkans, Corto Literary works as a co-agent with international publishers and agencies on Central and Eastern European markets. Our main objective is to match the right publishers with the right titles and thus contribute to greater success of our clients.
