Welcome to Westwood Creative Artists

Westwood Creative Artists is Canada’s largest literary agency. It’s also one of the oldest and most respected. Situated in a Victorian house in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood, our staff of eleven includes six full-time book agents who are supported by an in-house international rights agent and an outstanding network of twenty-four international co-agents. We take great pride in the enthusiastic response to our list from publishers around the world and in the wide praise our writers receive from Canadian and international critics. We are honoured that many of the writers we represent have won and been shortlisted for such esteemed prizes as the Man Booker Prize, the Nobel Prize, and the Scotiabank Giller Prize.
