The Jo Unwin Literary Agency Ltd (JULA) will be based in new offices in London’s Somerset House and she will continue to represent her roster of debut and bestselling authors including Kit de Waal, Nina Stibbe, Cathy Rentzenbrink, Richard Ayoade and Jenny Colgan, while looking to expand her list.

WME has acquired Rabineau Wachter Sanford & Gillett (RWSG) Literary Agency, the talent agency announced on Monday.

Founded in 2000, RWSG works with authors and writers of film and television to help bring their stories to the screen. Many iconic works of literature have been adapted through RWSG, including the upcoming films “The Girl on the Train” and “The Snowman,” and previously “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” Its television projects include “The Leftovers,” “Olive Kitteridge,” and the upcoming “Berlin Station.”

The theme of this year’s ‘Madeleine Milburn Summer Writing Competition’ is ‘make us scared’, and entrants can send any genre of writing as long as it fits the brief. Writers from anywhere in the world that are un-agented and unpublished are eligible, although their manuscripts must be in English.
