Logo: Red Sofa Literary

Red Sofa Literary is a boutique literary agency originally established in the Twin Cities, MN. Much like a good book, our agency appreciates an author who brings a compelling narrative and a passion to the art of storytelling.

We believe the best ideas come via engaging conversations and over good coffee, sometimes while relaxing in a colorful lounger. Our mission is to celebrate a life of reading and geek culture, where brains always win over brawn.

For more info on our agency, please see our submission guidelines, posts and more. Enjoy!
