About us

Our literary agency was created in 1992 proposing bookrights of french, english and german publishers of non-fiction titles in the fields of body, mind and spirit which were soon completed by illustrated and fiction titles. Since then we sold over 1300 foreign rights.

Today Agence Schweiger represents 130 publishers french, german, english and other in various fields and has co-agents all over the world.
