The Ersilia Literary Agency on the Make Books Travel podcast!


It was so lovely to speak with Marleen Seegers from 2 Seas Agency on her amazing Make Books Travel podcast!
We talked about the resilience of the Greek publishing market, the impact of the pandemic on the country’s publishing industry, what led me to found my own literary agency back in 2009 and the challenges I faced then and how I dealt with them. Thank you so much, Marleen!

Ευχαριστώ θερμά τη συνάδελφο, Marleen Seegers του 2Seas Agency για την ευγενική πρόσκληση να μιλήσω στο podcast της για τις επιπτώσεις του κορονοϊού στην ελληνική αγορά βιβλίου, καθώς και για την ιστορία του Ersilia Literary Agency: πώς πήρα την απόφαση να γίνω λογοτεχνική ατζέντης και να στήσω το δικό μου πρακτορείο το 2009, καθώς και για τις ιδιαίτερες προκλήσεις που αντιμετώπισα και πώς κατάφερα να τις ξεπεράσω.
