Our Story

International Publishing Services (IPS ME Ltd) is a key player in the Middle Eastern publishing industry with over 30 years’ active presence marketing, selling and promoting major English language publishers printed and digital books. With that experience, IPS ME Ltd saw that the greater MENA region has many gifted and underrepresented content creators that could use a helping hand to make their work reach a greater audience.

So, in close partnership with some of the best literary agents in the region – and
benefiting from their valuable insights, IPS ME Ltd decided to launch a new subsidiary Literary Sapiens Agency focussing primarily on literary copyright.

Based in Dubai (UAE), Literary Sapiens Agency has two major missions: to bring people together through the written word and to help talented writers and illustrators have a successful career.

What Do We Do?

At Literary Sapiens Agency we not only offer our legal expertise in reaching copyright agreements, but we also help develop the process and promotional stages of content creation.

We work closely with our global partners to represent and reflect the real value of their work and to enhance that worth with the appropriate marketing, branding and licensing choices.

We focus on a broad range of content that includes fiction, non-fiction, educational, adult, young adult and children’s genres. And, as the publishing industry advances and new technologies develop, we provide services best suited to meet such demands so that no stand-alone story is left behind.

In our opinion, what makes Literary sapiens such an unrivaled agency is our
philosophy of creating long term associations by believing in the stories and in people’s true intentions.
