Assia, the Hebrew word for Asia, is a vibrant independent literary agency founded in 2012 by Vered Nadav and Merav Shaul. Based in the Israeli metropolis of Tel Aviv, we represent select high-quality works of various genres such as fiction, non-fiction, children’s literature, YA fiction and graphic novels by the finest and most au courant Israeli authors and illustrators. Among these works are leading bestsellers by award-winning writers and illustrators. Eager to bring talented forces from the Israeli literary scene to near and far cultures and languages, we have begun our journey in the Far East countries, where we were met with interest and success. Translation rights of titles we represent were sold to major publishers in China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Singapore. Recently, we have expanded our activity to European and US markets.
