The Janczuk Literary Agency (JLA) is a full-service boutique literary agency in New York City (NYC) that specializes in the literary representation for authors working in a broad range of fiction and non-fiction for children, young adults, and adults.
Ever-hungry for smart writing and narrative, the agency’s mission is to identify and nurture the best writers, looking to build lifelong careers. We offer literary representation for print and digital media, and partner with dozens of the best institutions and co-agents across the market to place international, film/TV, serial, and other subsidiary rights for our authors and their projects.
JLA agents apply the highest degree of innovation and rigorous intelligence with regards to the industry’s ever-changing frameworks, be they intellectual property questions or those otherwise legal, corporate, fiscal, or technological in nature.
The agency maintains a corporate and entrepreneurial commitment.
We are members of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI).
Weronika (/Vɛ.rɔˈɲi.ka/) (Veronica) E. K. Janczuk [WEKJ] is the founder of the Janczuk Literary Agency.
She began her work in the world of corporate book publishing as an editorial intern for a small imprint in the state of Minnesota, working also with a teen program at St. Paul’s Loft Literary Center, then agented in NYC from 2010-2012. She built a list that included the first four novels of Hugo-, Nebula-, Locus-, and Campbell-winning as well as internationally-bestselling novelist Max Gladstone’s Craft Sequence, among others.
WEKJ returned to the world of corporate book publishing in the fall of 2021, opening JLA in the state of New York after five years directing projects with two international non-profits. She has worked with several of the industry’s best agents, including Lynn C. Franklin (1946-2021), in agreement with Todd Siegal, at Franklin & Siegal; Kathleen Anderson; Jenny Bent; and Mary Kole (formerly of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency).
Born in Canada to parents who immigrated as political exiles from communist Poland, WEKJ moved to the USA in 1998. Fluent in Polish and English, today she is privileged to be a rare tri-citizen (Polish, Canadian, and American), and brings to her work a history with the European Union (EU) and all its territories.
She lives and works in NYC.
