• The Agency

    Kneerim & Williams is a full-service literary and dramatic rights agency based in Boston. We handle the placement of American and foreign publication rights as well as film, television, audio, digital media, and merchandising rights for a wide range of clients.

    Since its founding in 1990 by Jill Kneerim and Ike Williams, our mission has been to help talented writers achieve their publishing goals. We welcome both first-time writers and well-established authors. Over the years, our client list has grown to include New York Times best-selling novelists, prize-winning historians, scientists, and journalists.

    We believe in supporting the author's whole career as a writer. Our agents work collaboratively, so every author gets the benefit of the whole team's thinking in terms of publishing strategy. We're proud to represent outstanding and widely recognized writers in every category we handle.
