Meg Davis

I founded Ki Agency in 2011 to represent authors and scriptwriters.

If I have a wishlist, it would include voices of minorities and misfits – anyone who can redefine a genre or take me on a new adventure, but which also has something to say and a lot of heart.

Favourite films include Addams Family Values, The Philadelphia Story, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; favourite TV includes Wandavision, Superstore, Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, Mythic Quest.

Favourite books include RA Lafferty’s short stories, Notes on a Scandal, A Path With Heart, Tristram Shandy.

I’m not a good bet for fiction that might be considered to be wearing a cardigan, or which is narrated by an animal.

My clients include: Emma Adams, Meltem Arıkan, Tom Boyle, Linda Carey, Louise Carey, Mike Carey / M.R. Carey, Kate Charlesworth, Helena Coggan, A.D. Cooper, Victoria Crompton, Nicole Dade, Brian Daniels, D.P. Depp, Joanne Drayton, Diane Duane, Duncan Falconer, Kitty Ferguson, Peter Glanville, Fred Hoyle (estate), Shaun Hutson, Barb Jungr, Annie Machon, Robin Norwood, Anne Perry, Kay Sexton, Nick Singh, Gillian Spraggs, Angela Slatter, Catherine Webb / Claire North, Xanthe Wells, and Gerald Wilson.

We here at The Ki Agency are all searching for the latest and most exciting new writing talent.

 I’m particularly searching for fearless new screenwriters with big, bold, risky ideas that have such a unique premise it literally takes your breath away. Your genre of choice is irrelevant as I’ll evaluate any one, however, don’t be too clever as some genre clashes can often end up being confusing.

Please keep your concept crystal clear, but make your characters, complex. Aim to be nominally pre-zeitgeist (a la Black Mirror, The Thick of It), if you can.

Please stick to present-day UK (this keeps budgets low). Obviously, we welcome voices of every background and encourage any diverse new writers plus writers of every sexual persuasion. I’m always on the lookout for outrageous new black comedies, powerful authentic romances, unusual thrillers/clever crime, strange new horror stories (particularly by women) and stories that defy expectation and categorisation. If you can find an occupation and/or an unusual landscape/location that’s been under-used, we’d like to read about it within your story.

Sadly, I have to concede, to the power of the various new streaming companies, so I’m now less focused on feature film scripts, but concentrating instead on returning TV drama series. Concentrate on that USP and returning ‘engine’.

I’d especially love to see a feminist horror tv series, a tv sitcom or melodrama about a quirky family, such as Shtisel, and a detective drama from a new and unusual angle.

My cinematic taste veers from obscure art-house films to big studio pictures but I’m usually to be found at The Prince Charles enjoying a new British horror film or the latest Isabelle Huppert. My idea of the ‘perfect’ film-maker is Pedro Almovodar whose outrageous camp melodramas can also surprise and delight with their emotional depth. TV-wise I’ve been recently loved Daisy Haggard’s new series, Back to Life, therefore cannot wait to see Sophie Willan’s Alma’s Not Normal. I was a big fan of It’s a Sin, The Terror, Devs and Succession, which to my amazement is revealing two new episodes from their 3rd series at the upcoming London Film Festival! (a metaphor for TV ‘taking-over’ the film world or TV just being shot as well as classic wide-screen entertainment?)

Books-wise, I’m currently savouring the new Sally Rooney, Beautiful World, Where Are You? and I loved Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz (one to terrify creative writing teachers everywhere!) but essentially, I appreciate a great story well told but from a unique angle or from a new voice and something that makes me think or imagine. My favourite writers include; Donna Tart, Angela Carter, Muriel Spark, Edith Wharton, Victor LaValle, Tennessee Williams & JG Ballard.

My clients include Moira James-Moore, Heidi O’Loughlin, Andrew X. Fleming, Sandy Nicholson, Philip Johnstone, Cassie Jauffret-Lenzi, Rosie Harris, Kyran Davies & Scott Quinn, Carlyle King & Erica Hiller Carpenter, Tiarna Armstrong, and Collet E.E. Collins.

Anne C. Perry

Hello, there!

I love birds, dinosaurs, overlooked flowers, happy endings, unhappy endings, Yzma, and the Mon Calamari.

My wishlist includes action-romance in the vein of films such as Romancing the Stone and The Mummy (the 1999 version, of course, though I naturally also love the 1932 version – and, indeed, all classic monster movies from that era). I’m actively seeking popular science, natural history, and nature/memoir writing by women and writers from underrepresented backgrounds: On The Red Hill, Mudlarking and Corvus: A Life with Birds being particular favourites.

Beloved authors include Dorothy L. Sayers, Becky Chambers, China Mieville, Elizabeth Gaskell, Eloisa James, Samantha Irby, John Ruskin (I know, but reading The Stones of Venice for the first time was transformative), Rachel Carson, Elif Batuman, Georgette Heyer, Allie Brosh, and Brandon Taylor. Charlotte is my Brontë and Pride & Prejudice* is my Austen, though I adore Northanger Abbey** and Persuasion***.

My clients include: Adam Roberts, Ahmed Baba, Alex Ries, Anya Pearson, Fiona Barnett, John Bull, Helen Marshall, TJ Logan, Jesse Stuart, John Allison, Marianne Gordon, Matthew Feldman, Nicole Swengley, Paula Lennon, Ryan Love, Sarah McManus, and the estate of Sally Heilbut.
