WHAT WE DO

GMC offers strategic communications support to authors, agents, and publishers. For more than 25 years we have maximized the potential of established writers and built major careers for many talented newcomers. Founded in 1981 by Lynn Goldberg after ten years at Random House and Farrar, Straus & Giroux, she was joined by Camille McDuffie in 1986.

The firm has been the agency of choice for many of the country’s finest authors and is credited with the creative campaigns behind hundreds of national bestsellers. Umberto Eco, Nicole Krauss, Gail Godwin, Alice Hoffman, David Baldacci, Jodi Picoult, Ron Chernow, Bruce Feiler, Alexandra Fuller, Harold Bloom and Alan Greenspan are among the authors the company has served.

In 1995 Goldberg McDuffie Business was established to work with CEOs, business leaders and academics to move their ideas forward into positions of influence. GMC’s consulting division offers digital strategies and social media outreach advising authors on how to efficiently and effectively use their time, resources and contacts to build their brand and expand their networks and readership online.

In addition to our work on individual book campaigns, GMC’s communications strategies have placed us at the center of literary culture. We represent The Library of America and The Whiting Awards. We have represented the National Book Awards, the National Endowment of the Arts Big Read program, PEN’s International Writers’ Festival, The New Yorker, and Atlanta’s Cultural Olympiad.
