British literary agent Jo Unwin has set up a new, eponymous, agency in the U.K., working with established outfit, Rogers Coleridge and White. The Jo Unwin Literary Agency will be officially open for business on Monday and will focus on launching new authors, and representing established talent.
Unwin established herself at the agency Conville and Walsh, where she was known, in particular, for representing debut authors. She will be working out of the RCW office in London, selling directly in the U.S. and the U.K., with RCW handling her foreign rights. Unwin's agency will be representing titles in the gernes of fiction; children's and young adult; memoir; comedy; and narrative nonfiction.
