More than a literary agency.

Hyponymous Literary helps culturally-creative authors shape content, find their way in the puzzling world of publishing, and create discoverability with their audience. We help authors look holistically at their work, put the focus on the particularity of their identity, and resist generic, mass culture ways of thinking and acting. In a time of great change, we believe in independence, connectedness, and entrepreneurialism as values that create change.  

(hī ¦ pänəməs) A quality of a word of a more specific meaning
than a general or superordinate term applicable to it.

In today’s marketplace, there’s so much choice and segmentation. But in every challenge, there is opportunity. 
It’s all about rich identity and specificity, which attracts more highly-engaged audiences than ever. 
With a good strategy and achievable goals,  build momentum for your publishing over time, and don't wait for the whims of the marketplace.
