Present Perfect Dept. was founded in 2015. Present Perfect is a literary agency with a distinctive point of view. We value truth over trends, elevated aesthetics, and books that better readers. Our agency represents the best in conversation-changing, innovative, and design-driven nonfiction. They are based in the Bay Area and serve a diverse client base from around the globe.

The agency’s agents, Kate Woodrow and Laura Lee Mattingly, have a combined two decades of experience as editors at major trade publishers. This means they know what editors want and how to pitch them, as well as what goes on behind the scenes in a publishing house. Since starting the agency, they’ve used this unique insider’s perspective to help Present Perfect authors hone their book vision, develop compelling proposals, match with their ideal publisher, negotiate competitive deals and contracts, smoothly navigate every turn of publishing, and strategically build long-term author careers.

Present Perfect handles all foreign, domestic, and subsidiary rights for their authors to ensure their books reach the widest audience. When selling film/TV and foreign rights, they partner with a talented network of co-agents dedicated to delivering top results in their industries.

Their industry reputation is sterling. Present Perfect is consistently ranked among the top agencies for the lifestyle, art/illustrated, and advice/relationships categories by Publishers Marketplace, and has been featured on numerous podcasts.
