Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Eric Smith of P.S. Literary Agency

Eric Smith is a literary agent at P.S. Literary Agency, with a love for young adult books, literary fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, and nonfiction. He’s worked on award-winning and New York Times bestselling titles, and began his publishing career at Quirk Books.

A frequent blogger, his ramblings about books and the publishing industry regularly appear on Book Riot, Paste Magazine, and Publishing Crawl. He also occasionally writes books when he finds the time, like his latest, Don’t Read the Comments (Inkyard Press).

Eric is eagerly acquiring fiction and nonfiction projects. He’s actively seeking out new, diverse voices in young adult (particularly sci-fi and fantasy), middle grade, and literary and commercial fiction (again, loves sci-fi and fantasy, but also thrillers and mysteries). In terms of nonfiction, he’s interested in cookbooks, pop culture, humor, middle grade, essay collections, and blog to book ideas.
