Will Francis shortlisted for Agent of the Year at The British Book Awards

We couldn't be more proud to see Janklow & Nesbit's very own Will Francis shortlisted for Literary Agent of the Year at The British Book Awards, aka The Nibbies.

Selectors of the shortlist had this to say about the reasons for his making the cut: “Will Francis of Janklow & Nesbit has a flair for building agenda-setting non-fiction, from Adam Rutherford, Tracy King, Mary Ann Sieghart and Ed Yong among others in 2023. He’s a very strategic agent with an eye on the long-term rather than instant hits, and with Rangan Chatterjee has shown he can build big author brands.”

Several of Will's clients have added their praise via social media with Pete Etchells - author of the forthcoming UNLOCKED: The Real Science of Screen Time (and how to spend it better) - tweeting: "It's so great to see this. Will is the kindest, most thoughtful, compassionate and genuinely interested (and interesting!) agent that anyone could ask for. It's a privilege to work with him, and he should win all the awards."

We wish Will the best of luck! The winner will be announced at a ceremony at Grosvenor House London on Monday 13th May. You can see the remainder of the Book Trade Award shortlists here: https://www.thebookseller.com/...
