Tell all the Truth but Tell it slant
— Emily Dickinson
Veritas is a full-service literary agency representing both fiction and nonfiction. Founded on the premise that literature is one of the best vehicles for truth—both artistic and literal—the agency cultivates strong, innovative books that extend the boundaries of thought and expression.
With active contacts in film and foreign markets, we pursue the channels that enable a title to reach its widest audience. Veritas maintains the structure and spirit of old school literary agencies, where a close relationship between author and agent continued through all stages of a writer’s career. By maintaining a selective list, we can ensure that every author and title receive consistent, thoughtful attention and resources. Accessibility is a priority.

With a strong background in editing and writing, Michael enjoys teaching at workshops and conferences to help develop emerging writers. He is fluent in Spanish and speaks conversational French.
