Elizabeth Copps is a literary agent with and the founder of Copps Literary Services. In the summer of 2010, Elizabeth Copps did what any starry-eyed word nerd would do: she used her savings to move from Florida to New York City with the goal of doing something—anything—related to books.
When she was offered an internship with Maria Carvainis Agency, Inc., she discovered her passion for publishing. For the past decade, Elizabeth has dedicated herself to the care and management of author careers. Her business philosophy is simple: to foster relationships across the industry that are equitable, transparent, and long-lasting.
She is excited to build Copps Literary Services and her list of award-winning and eclectic clients from her current home of Denver, Colorado.
What Elizabeth is looking for: Elizabeth is drawn to fresh takes on timeless plots; stories that are thought provoking and discussion spurring. She loves complex characters who are brimming with personality and burst off the page. Who are irreverent and dark. Smart and sarcastic. Creative and wise.
She specializes in middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction in the following genres: contemporary with a literary bent, historical, horror, magical realism, thriller/mystery/suspense, book club, and women’s fiction. In nonfiction, she seeks platform-driven memoir and biography.
