Agents and Editors for WIFYR 2017
Ben Grange Agent
Ben has been the assistant at JABberwocky since September 2015. In April 2015, he graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English literature, and emphases in Shakespeare and creative writing. Four months later, he picked up and moved from Utah to New York, where he interned at at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management for three weeks before starting at JABberwocky. Before working at JABberwocky, Ben did internships at Dystel & Goderich, the Bent Agency, A+B Works Literary Agency, and Shadow Mountain Publishing, where he gained a range of experience in the publishing industry.
Amy Jameson Agent
Amy Jameson began her career in publishing working with renowned literary agent Lynn Nesbit. During her seven years at Janklow & Nesbit Associates, Amy had the privilege of working with acclaimed authors such as Michael Crichton, President Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe, Gore Vidal, Joan Didion, Jeffrey Eugenides, and many others. She also sold audio and first serial rights for several years at J&N while building her own select client list. In 2004, she left Janklow and partnered with her husband Brandon to form A+B Works. Amy has always had a passion for young adult and middle grade fiction.
Emily Feinberg Editor
Children’s book editor at Roaring Brook Press, a Broadway music lover, and a dog fanatic. She works on mostly picture book, chapter book, and middle grade titles, though she would never turn down a chance to look at a humorous, realistic young adult novel. Feinburg is looking for quirky, voice-driven picture books and middle grade and nonfiction for young readers. Young adult fantasy is not her thing. Her recent titles are upcoming nonfiction picture books Coyote Moon and Highway Hawks by Maria Gianferrari. She also recently acquired Marina Cohen’s The Inn Between, a supremely creepy middle grade story about a haunted Nevada inn with a strong emotional hook.
