Need an agent? We've got TWO!

Words with JAM - An Agent's Eye View

Hear it from the horse's mouth.

Every issue, the best agents in the business will give us the view from the other side. Not only do you get insights, tips and expert advice, but YOUR questions will be answered personally.

We spoil you, we really do.

Andrew Lownie, founder of the Andrew Lownie Literary Agency, joins Words with JAM to give writers the inside track. Author, journalist and celebrated agent specialising in non-fiction, Andrew understands the problems facing writers in the current shifting climate.

As well as advice on what to do, what definitely not to do and how the market looks from his standpoint, Andrew will answer WwJ readers directly. For lots more perceptive analysis and experienced opinion, read his website:

And especially for our June YA/Children’s literature issue, Julia Churchill of Greenhouse Literary Agency, will give us her perspective on writing for young people. Julia founded her reputation as a talent-spotter and deal-maker at the Darley Anderson Agency, developing their prestigious children’s books list.

Since joining Greenhouse in 2009, Julia’s ceaseless enthusiasm for the treasure hunt of the submissions pile is undiminished and she can often be found in the cafes of West London, working through a pile of manuscripts. She regularly attends British writers’ events and is on the lookout for both new and established authors with storytelling magic.
