Before becoming an agent Jenny Brown was previously Head of Literature at the Scottish Arts Council, a presenter of Scottish Television’s book programmes, and was the first Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival (of which she is now a Board member).
She created the agency that bears her name in 2002 and it has grown to become the biggest agency in Scotland and one of the leading literary agencies in the UK.
As well as representing around fifty authors, Jenny was one of the four creators and founders of Edinburgh as first UNESCO City of Literature, and is the Chair of the Bloody Scotland crime festival, an internationally acclaimed celebration of ‘Tartan Noir’.
We can’t wait for Jenny to kick off our day. We’ll see you in March.
