Authors are the last magicians. A couple of black dashes on a white paper – and suddenly a fantastic scene is created. For what is it if not magic when you get to think the thoughts of another person. When you experience new worlds, eras and feelings. Alchemy? Perhaps. Talent? Most probably. Hard work? Without doubt.
A story is not just something that happens. It is something that someone does. It takes someone very special to bring an idea all the way to a ready book. And we love those people. We believe they make the world greater, all of us better, and life more beautiful.
Nordin Agency is an author agency based in Stockholm. The agency represents some of the best Scandinavian authors and work with their rights worldwide on all markets. We like to say that we are the first author agency in Sweden, founded in 1990. Yes, it is true that both August Strindberg and Astrid Lindgren also had passionate people – you could call them great agents – that successfully got their manuscripts published and dramatized worldwide. We are proud to be part of this tradition of bringing the best of Scandinavian authors to readers, listeners and viewers everywhere.
NORDIN RINGHOF AGENCY
Nordin Ringhof Agency was founded on the 1st of November 2023 as an author agency based in Copenhagen. The idea behind the agency is to build and maintain close relationships with its authors and to advance their positions as important cultural voices in Denmark and the world. Nordin Ringhof Agency was created when Nordin Agency in Sweden acquired Danish Lars Ringhof Agency, originally founded in 2001 and representing a diverse list of eminent Danish authors of fiction, non-fiction and YA.
Our focus will be to care for and nurture Danish authors of all genres working in close collaboration with their editors and publishing houses to bring their stories to life. Lars Ringhof built his agency on an in-depth knowledge of the publishing industry and a deep respect for the author’s work, its obstacles and needs. Nordin Ringhof Agency will continue this tradition of following all aspects of a manuscript, from the earliest ideas to its professional publication. It is important for us and our authors that we significantly expand our global reach while growing stronger in relation to the international publishing and film industry.
We will work hard to make sure that our authors receive the best possible publishing conditions in their original language and throughout all of their works’ many different formats all the way to translated and adapted works.
