Heather Jackson

2025 Guest Literary Agent and 2021 Virtual Guest Literary Agent, Heather Jackson Literary Agency

Heather Jackson started Heather Jackson Literary Agency in 2016 after a highly successful career as a trade editor. In her 20+ years as an editor she acted as the creative midwife to multiple dozens of New York Times bestselling authors and titles. The selective client list she is cultivating has one unifying theme: to represent authors and books that entertain, elevate, inform, or make some type of positive difference to the individual reader or our larger society. Works that make you want to press the pause button on everything else–ditch the screens, the duties, the worries–to sit down and read for hours. Books that can ignite or shift a conversation and that might unite us rather than divide us further. And, most importantly, books that can connect deeply and widely with masses of readers.
