Representing authors at varying stages of their careers, we help authors prepare their manuscripts with a view to submission to publishers in several jurisdictions.
Essentially we operate as a collective enterprise, a characteristic embracing much of what we do for authors, what authors will do for each other.
While our staff are all skilled professionals from a range of disciplines, essentially, they provide their services through NAC on a voluntary basis, all committed to authors’ well-being.
Two Brands, Three Divisions
Spreading word of NAC’s support for authors engenders established author interest in joining NAC’s List, prompting the April 2018 launch of 'NAC Literary Agency' whose aim is to focus on the differing needs of our eclectic list of authors.
Manuscripts are managed in three categories: -
- Adult fiction
- Adult non-fiction
- Children’s works (children, middle grade and YA’s).
To Date, the Future
Grounded in the selfless contribution of our 390+/- wonderful volunteers (as at June 2019), whether as New Authors Collective or NAC Literary Agency, NAC’s vision for the role of literary agent, our commitment to authors and publishers, and our unique review process, are particular strengths.
Achieving enviable success since New Authors Collective was registered in August 2015, to date >50% of manuscripts fully completing our process receive one or more publishing offers.
The future seems bright, with nearly 20 authors represented by NAC having received publisher offers (as at May 2019), 31 having joined the journey.
