The Tompkins Agency for Ukrainian Literature in Translation
TAULT is a nonprofit literary agency and translation house devoted to the visibility and availability of contemporary Ukrainian Literature in the English-speaking world. Founded in 2018 by literary translator Zenia Tompkins, TAULT promotes the work of award-winning Ukrainian authors, with a specific interest in Ukraine’s younger generation of writers. Through our New Voices program, we also seek to build visibility for emerging authors of exceptional promise.
TAULT represents Ukrainian literature across a variety of genres and styles, from literary fiction and popular fiction to the growing field of Ukrainian creative nonfiction and the remarkable universe of Ukrainian children’s literature. In collaboration with our translators, we take a comprehensive approach to promoting our authors’ work, with the goal of building a broader audience for both the individual author and contemporary Ukrainian literature as a whole. We invite you to learn more about our books, our authors, and our approach.
