The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter—’tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning (Mark Twain).

Hello—and welcome!

I serve as a literary agent, which means that I represent writers of fiction and non-fiction, their projects, and their interests before publishing houses. I first agented from 2010-2012, departed for six years for work in the non-profit context, and returned in August 2018.

Learn more about my publishing experience, including former projects sold, and the kinds of books I desire to represent.

Know that I love innovative ideas, beautiful prose, a depth of character and perception, experiences of wonder and childlikeness and curiosity, as well as the pursuit of the good, true, and beautiful.

Thanks for swinging by.

Warmly,

WJ_SigShort
