Profile Summary

Jenny is a relatively new agent who is actively building her list. She is interested in debut fiction and non-fiction. Before becoming an agent she worked for the Guardian Hay Festival. She originally hails from Manchester and has a degree in English Literature from Edinburgh University.

Her list is largely made up of debut novelists and tends towards literary and women's fiction. That said she does represent some crime, notably crime writer Brian McGilloway, creator of The Inspector Devlin series). Examples of the type of fiction writers she is signing up include debut literary novelists Zoe Pilger ('Eat My Heart Out') and Amy Sackville ('The Still Point'). She also represents Short story writer Alexander MacLeod ('Light Lifting') and novelist and biographer, Wendy Jones (Grayson Perry: Portrait of the artist as a Young Girl).

Jenny's non-fiction list is currently quite small (culture, art and lingerie design seem to be of interest!). We think this would be a good area for new writers to target and have contacted Jenny to find out what kind of non-fiction she would like to pick up on the slush pile.

Beyond the RCW website, there is relatively little online information online about Jenny. She tweets irregularly @JennyHewson but we suggest that prospective clients scroll through as it is a work based account which gives an indication of her tastes and preferences. If any subscribers are able to supply further information about Jenny, please do drop us a line as we are always keen to add to our profiles.

We do not accept any other email submissions unless by prior arrangement with individual agents. We will try to respond within six to eight weeks of receipt of your material, but please appreciate that this isn't always possible as we must give priority to the authors we already represent.
