    Lucy Cleland joined Kneerim & Williams in 2013, and serves as its Dramatic Rights Manager along with building her own list. She has worked with new and established authors on projects ranging from groundbreaking “big idea” nonfiction to literary fiction and memoir. A Southern transplant to Boston, Lucy graduated from Wellesley College where she studied English and studio art. Lucy enjoys working on compelling nonfiction, particularly unconventional social and cultural history, biographies of women, true crime, and narrative nonfiction or memoir with a contemporary angle. In fiction, she is partial to novels with a surprising hook and powerful emotional engine. Lucy also represents YA and loves bold, immersive reads with protagonists who push boundaries and grapple with tough questions, whether they do it in our world or another. Across genres, she is drawn to the lives of creatives and rebels, and questions about identity and inheritance.

    Lucy also coordinates the internship program; please email her directly with any inquiries.
