About Us

Strachan Literary Agency specializes in representing literary fiction and narrative nonfiction: compelling stories, well told.

The agency was established in 1998 by literary agent and principal Laura Strachan who was looking for a way to combine her lifetime love of books and good writing with her legal education.

Strachan Literary Agency is located in historic Annapolis, Maryland, an easy train ride to mid-town Manhattan.



Effective, January 31, 2018, Strachan Literary Agency will close to submissions. We currently have a backlog of reading, and it isn't fair to authors to leave them in limbo for such long periods of time. We will reopen to submissions as soon as we've caught up. Thanks for your understanding.
