Woolcott will work at the publisher three days a week, helping to grow the business.
Little Toller, based in Toller Fratrum, was established in 2008 and specialises in non-fiction titles about the natural world and our relationship with landscape. Authors include Iain Sinclair, Richard Mabey, Adam Thorpe and Oliver Rackham.
Little Toller co-director Gracie Cooper said: "We’re very lucky to have found Jon at this point; we have been looking for ways to expand what we do, and Jon’s experience will be invaluable.”
Woolcott said: “I have long admired Little Toller’s publishing and this is a wonderful opportunity for me.”
