Jonathan Pegg Literary Agency

My Manuscript Wish List®

I have worked in the UK publishing industry since 1997.

I first became a fully-fledged agent in 2002, when I became responsible for an extensive and diverse list of clients at Curtis Brown Group Ltd.  Upon founding JPLA in 2008, I swiftly established a rounded portfolio and commensurately robust independent agency.

In the continued expansion of JPLA, I am seeking writers with long-term potential who may feel at home with a down-to-earth independent agency.

My enthusiasms and track record belong in joined-up pockets across literary and quality commercial fiction and non-fiction.

In fiction: literary and well-written novels including pacey thrillers.

In non-fiction: accessible estimable writing with commercial potential by journalists, experts, scholars, figures who stand for something in the public eye and anyone with a fascinating, well-written story.
