Books@Jacaranda set up in 1997, is a full service literary agency, working with first time as well as established writers covering the entire range of activities associated with successfully placing a manuscript. In 2008, the agency expanded to open a branch in Singapore.
We value relationships we build with our writers and publishers, and we place value in nurturing these relationships. Our mission is as simple as our philosophy. We want writing from India, Singapore and the subcontinent to become accessible globally. Simply put, we want our writers' word to become their published word.
