In the late 1800s, railroad companies were the richest and most powerful in the nation. But in the twentieth century those very companies lost almost all of their value. Why? Because they thought they were in the railroad business. If they had only realized they were in the transportation business they would have adapted to the new modes of travel evolving around them.  


We are not in the book business. We are in the story business. And it’s our mission to move your story from your imagination to the page, from your book to screens or live events, and from your podcast or Instagram to all of the above.  The media are changing, but the demand for compelling stories has never been stronger.


Moving stories is our specialty. But we also help create stories that move people: Our value-based storytelling methodology helps authors build narratives that people care about, thus maximizing emotional impact and audience reach.


Movable Type Management provides inventive literary representation and development in a wide range of fiction and nonfiction genres for the rapidly changing world.


After receiving a degree in finance and management from N.Y.U.’s Stern School of Business and spending a decade as a sales and marketing specialist for technology startups, Adam Chromy decided to blend his love of narrative with his modern entrepreneurial spirit. The result was Artists and Artisans Inc., where for ten years he represented authors with a professional rigor seldom seen in the book business. After hundreds of published books and dozens of bestsellers, Adam relaunched his company as Movable Type Management to better serve clients by offering them the higher visibility afforded by film and television adaptations of their work.
