Editorially minded, systematic, and hands-on, AKIN AKINWUMI supports book projects with a keen eye on the bigger picture. He founded Willenfield Literary Agency propelled by a long-held vision for an independent-minded, outward-looking, and culturally engaged literary agency with an international perspective. He is focused on guiding the development of successful projects and generating opportunities for his clients internationally—in every area of the evolving literary and publishing landscape.
Passionate about innovative and culturally relevant writing, he welcomes compelling projects with something important to say about the contemporary experience of being in and interacting with the world. He appreciates creative daring and restlessness in writing, being particularly drawn to writers that break with convention, extend the bounds of creative possibility in language, and embody the spirit of invention that defines the best of contemporary writing.
