Jo Williamson – WOWCON Agent 1-2-1s (MG, YA)
In MG, I am looking for something to make me cackle with laughter and snort out my cup of tea. Deliciously dark humour, silly slapstick humour, quirky humour - anything goes! I am also after classic MG adventure written with heart and imagination that will hook me from the opening pages.
In YA, I am after a feel good comedy or romcom, preferably with diverse and marginalised voices, but the most important thing is that the characters must be believable, their stories ring true and I must fall in love with them.
I have worked with Antony Harwood for over a decade and represent authors across all genres including Chris Naylor-Ballesteros, Peter Bunzl and Andy Shepherd. It is the best job in the world! Prior to joining the agency, I worked in children's books PR for 13 years.
