She’ll work with clients, including novelists, historians, journalists, and publications to help develop their platforms and transform their ideas into projects.”
“I’m thrilled to join A3 as it expands its literary division into new areas of unparalleled client service,” said Willcox. “I look forward to working across the agency’s broad spectrum of expertise to bring first-class representation to authors and our co-agents around the world.”
Willcox most recently worked as a literary agent and head of media rights at Paradigm, where she led the department in representing IP in conjunction with US and UK-based independent publishing agents for sale to motion pictures and television.
Prior to serving as an executive at Material, Tobey Maguire’s production company, and as an executive producer on the 2015 film The Circle, Willcox spent 27 years working for CAA. As an agent in its motion picture literary department, she represented many of the world’s leading authors, screenwriters, journalists and companies.
