Janna Bonikowski is a literary agent with The Knight Agency.
Janna joined the Knight Agency in 2016 with several years of experience as both an independent editor and a freelance editor for Lyrical Press/Kensington. She holds a bachelor’s degree focused on business and economics, but her passion for books made a career in publishing inevitable.
Janna is eager to find well-crafted stories with tight pacing; authentic, diverse characters (especially by #ownvoices authors); distinctive voices; and—above all–big, imaginative concepts. She loves books demonstrating the strength of women, books that make her laugh out loud, and books about socially relevant topics. More than anything, she wants to be surprised. She’s currently looking for young adult, women’s fiction, romance, historical fiction, commercial fiction, and cozy mystery.
