Moving Writers Forward
Hi there. I'm Joe Durepos. I'm an author coach and literary agent dedicated to helping writers push their publishing dreams forward.
Throughout my career in publishing, I've helped bring more than 500 books to market, with worldwide sales of over 15 million. I've worked in both fiction and non-fiction, have sold manuscripts to every major North American publisher, and have seen dozens of my projects climb bestseller lists.
Here at Durepos Literary, my expertise is at your disposal. I'll leverage my years of experience to help you understand the book industry, and give you the tools you need to pursue a successful career in writing and publishing.
Consultation & Collaboration
Paths to Publication
At Durepos Literary, I help authors achieve their publishing dreams.
Whether you have a manuscript that needs direction, want help creating a proposal, or you are in need of artistic feedback, I've got the insight and savvy you need to navigate the business of books.
Writing may be solitary, but you don't have to toil alone. As a coach, I advocate for your work, help you define your vision, and offer feedback, professional resources, and support.
Sometimes it feels like the only thing harder than writing a book is getting it published. As your consultant, I'll help you shape your project, draft proposals, and get you on the road to your first printing.
In addition to my consulting work, I offer literary representation to a select group of authors. My clients are close collaborators whom I represent with great care and consideration.
