Greyhound Literary is a London-based literary agency. Our team has years of experience gained across the book industry and an exciting, varied client list.

Charlie Campbell co-founded Kingsford Campbell in 2014, which later became CCLA. Our chairman Patrick Janson-Smith has been with us since the agency was founded, and agents Julia Silk, Charlotte Atyeo and Natalie Galustian bring a wealth of experience from the worlds of agenting, publishing and rare-book dealing. In January 2022 Sam Edenborough joined as co-owner and director, having sold translation rights for Charlie and his colleagues for 8 years in his previous role at ILA.  Together they re-branded the company as Greyhound Literary. 

As a team we have extensive contacts in journalism, film, television and radio. All of which means we’re able to work alongside our authors at every step of the publishing process.

We take incredible pride in our clients’ work, and focus on building careers as well as selling books. Our agents get as excited about an author’s tenth book as they do about their first, and we take great care to build collaborative, valuable relationships between author and agent.

Today, our clients include bestselling and prize-winning authors of literary and commercial fiction and non-fiction, in particular memoir, biography, music, sport, politics, social science, history and illustrated books. And we have an award-winning list of children’s authors and illustrators, which includes winners of the Carnegie Medal and the YA Book Prize.
