James Farner

James Farner (he/him) is an Agency Assistant for JABberwocky Literary Agency, where he works on everything from website updating and royalty report processing to manuscript reading and contract reviewing. He was born and raised in the Midwest, received his bachelor’s degree in English writing and religious studies from the University of Oklahoma (where he interned with award-winning literary magazine World Literature Today), and moved to New York City to attend The New School for Social Research’s Liberal Studies master’s program.

James grew up reading epic fantasies, but he’s drifted in his reading preferences toward science fiction and fantasy novels filled with mysteries, political thrillers, and capers. When he’s not reading, his minimal free time goes to keeping up with the best TV series and listening to podcasts in the tech-adjacent geek-sphere.
