Presentation and Q&A: "The Role of the Agent"

Agent Amy Williams, Williams Literary Agency
Friday, January 22, 2021
12:00-1:00 PM
Off Campus Location
This event is open to MFA students and Zell Fellows only.

Amy Williams started her publishing career as an associate editor at Doubleday but shifted to agenting for the inherent flexibility of ideas and possibilities. She has worked for ICM, and co-ventured in starting two agencies before developing her own, The Williams Company. She represents a wide range of work, and is drawn to fiction (literary, commercial, experimental, and stories), hybrid works, memoir, and essays. Among many others, she represents Jia Tolentino, Alix Ohlin, Christie Tate, Emily Raboteau, Nami Mun, Rattawut Lapcharoensap, Dean Bakopoulos, Karen Olsson, and has just signed Jumi Bello and Ellen Adams in the past few months.
