Talent and literary agent Tiauna Jackson discusses the benefits of achieving diversity at every level of the entertainment industry, using content creation to advance your career, and the formidable task of breaking into the business!
Tiauna Jackson is a Talent and Literary Agent for The Jackson Agency. Headquartered in Century City, California, she built her agency from the ground up within the entertainment industry’s most competitive market, Los Angeles. Anchored on Avenue of the Stars in Century City, Jackson decided to start her own agency after finding barriers to entry not only for herself, but for artists and writers of color, LGBTQ+ identifying, and senior citizens. She made history by becoming the first Writers Guild of America (WGA) franchise in Atlanta, Georgia, and is believed to be the first Black woman with 100 percent ownership of a WGA-franchised agency in Los Angeles. With Jackson’s agency dedicated to the underestimated, underrepresented and underserved, she applies a “root for the underdog” mentality to fostering the careers of emerging artists. Jackson looks forward to providing representation that matters to the exceptionally talented artists of the world. Additionally, she was featured in the New York Times, Medium, Oz Magazine, and Arizona Informant for her commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion while facing adversity through resilience.
