French Agents Take on Andrew Wylie

By Oliva Snaije

The French publishers Association (SNE) posted on their website an official petition against “certain initiatives taken by literary agents” (think Andrew Wylie) concerning electronic rights. All major French publishers have signed the petition and a few, including Antoine Gallimard stopped working with the Wylie agency when the agent set up a digital publishing company earlier in the year called Odyssey Editions. Wylie is to meet with French publishers at Frankfurt to reassure them. To see the complete list of French publishers who signed, click here.
