Profile Summary

Nemonie joined Jonathan Clowes Ltd in 2008 after completing a Masters in European Literature at Oxford University. Her background as an academic has led her to publish work in several collections as well as seek out new literary talent as an agent. Her contributions have appeared in Sight & Sound, Roads & Kingdoms and The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literary and Cultural Theory, and more.
Jonathan Clowes Ltd does not provide details of each of its agents' preferences or break down their client list per agent. As such, it has been difficult for us to ascertain what Nemonie's particular interests are. She appears to represent both non-fiction and fiction, with a heavy focus on works in translation. Her professional profile on LinkedIn suggests that she will also consider scripts for television comedy.
Nemonie was both a contributor as well as an agent for clients in the publication Diaries of an Unfinished Revolution: Voices from Tunis to Damascus and Writing Revolution: The Voices from Tunis to Damascus, suggesting a passion for works discussing political and cultural issues in Africa and the Middle East. Another notable success is American Interior: The Quixotic Journey of John Evans by Gruff Rhys, better known for his musical contributions to Super Furry Animals and Neon Neon.
These examples suggest Nemonie leans toward non-fiction with a penchant for politics and surreal takes on unusual topics. Given her love of books in translation, it is likely she would be interested in non-fiction books with a global them and potentially covering issues of marginalised cultures. Her involvement with a number of essay collections is a good indicator that she thinks highly of short-form writing. With a proven track record of published short essays, you are more likely to impress her.
If you wish to submit to Nemonie, do so via direct email, including a synopsis and the first three chapters (or equivalent) of your work.
