Maria Sileny

Literary Agent

Maria was born in Prague, but has been living in  Germany since she was a teenager. She studied Political Science, German Linguistics, American Culture and also Publishing Science in Munich. She has been working as a German journalist and editor for many years.

Thanks to her Czech roots, she has been lucky enough to encounter some excellent Czech fiction writers, who filled her with enthusiasm and awakened a strong interest in contemporary Czech literature. This experience made her decide to represent these authors abroad, and she founded the Prague Literary Agency in 2015.
