AEVITAS CREATIVE MANAGEMENT is a full service literary agency and content development firm established with the merger of Kuhn Projects and Zachary Shuster Harmsworth, whose twenty-one agents represent scores of nationally and internationally known novelists and memoirists, journalists and on-air correspondents, political and business leaders, academics and public intellectuals, sports figures and chefs, actors and artists, iconic brands and literary estates.
In Latin, Aevitas connotes timeliness, immortality, forever. Its definitions include:
—The time through which a person lives or a thing lasts, the time of existence;
—Of the future.
Our mission is to help cultivate and promote stories, expertise, and insights that are timely and timeless; that are innovative and necessary; that spark debate and challenge conventional wisdom; that enlighten and entertain; that inspire meaningful conversation and propose groundbreaking ideas; that test and expand on literary conventions; and that bring people together, influence the culture in positive ways, and enable voices that might otherwise be silenced to be heard.
We take pride in the integrity, thoughtfulness, and intellectual daring, and the unique literary, artistic, and other creative talents, of our clients and colleagues. We reject facile arguments or projects that lack compassion and grace. We seek out authors whose work evinces originality, vision, and moral courage.
AEVITAS’s authors include winners of numerous literary and artistic awards, fellowships and prizes including, among many others: three individual winners of the Pulitzer Prize; National Book Award; Guggenheim Fellowship; National Book Critics Circle Award; Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award; John S. Knight Fellowship; PEN/Hemingway Award; Pushcart Prize; Whiting Writer’s Award; Nobel Peace Prize; as well as the Tony, Grammy, Emmy and Academy Awards.
