Kathryn Willms

Associate Agent

Kathryn Willms has over 12 years of professional writing, editing, and management experience.

Since 2017, she has run Kwill Communications, an editorial firm specializing in educational and academic work, as well as providing substantive, stylistic, and copy editing for non-fiction authors. Prior to this, she was vice-president and senior editor at Colborne Communications, where she managed, wrote, and edited projects for corporate, government, and education clients. As publisher at Iguana Books, she oversaw acquisitions, production, sales, and marketing for over 25 books, a list that included fiction, non-fiction, and children’s. Before her foray into publishing, she worked in financial services and as a sports reporter. She holds an MA in English from the University of Calgary and was awarded the Marsh Jeanneret Award for academic excellence while studying editing at Ryerson University.

Over the course of her career, Kathryn has taken pride in building strong and supportive relationships with authors, and helping them find the right voice, structure, style, and audience for their work. She is excited to be continuing this work with The Rights Factory.

Kathryn is looking for non-fiction manuscripts with a unique point of view. As a generalist who simply likes “good books,” she’s open to a variety of genres and is, ultimately, a sucker for a good story compellingly told.
