Where Literary Legends Are Born


As one of the oldest literary agencies in the United States, McIntosh and Otis represents multiple generations of writers considered masters of their craft. Our writers have won the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize, United States Medal of Freedom, National Book Award, O. Henry Award, Agatha Award, and Edgar Award, among others. We are stewards of many of the great literary estates of the 20th century, including those of John Steinbeck, Walker Percy, Erskine Caldwell, Sinclair Lewis, Upton Sinclair, and Thomas Wolfe.
