Syllabes Agency is a rights agency based in Lyon and specialised in high quality children’s books. It was started by Galina Grekhova as a solo agent (which is still the case today) in 2016.
Initially, the agency’s main goal was to represent small independent publishers from France on the international scene but over time the agency’s mission expanded. Today, our activity is focused on the following domains:
– representing independent publishers’ catalogues with the goal of selling translation rights on their books. We represent a select number of (mostly) French publishers and we also work as a sub-agent for Russian-speaking territories;
– representing a select number of promising and award-winning authors/illustrators and their work, published or unpublished;
– developing new projects from scratch with authors and illustrators;
– providing services to small and medium-sized publishers: consulting and setting a strategy of foreign rights sales (establishing of a foreign rights department, launching of the first rights catalogue, participating in international events, communicating, using specific tools etc.).;
– consulting services to authors and illustrators.
