Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Elizabeth Copps of Copps Literary Services

Elizabeth Copps is a literary agent with 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 a boutique literary agency, she discovered her passion for publishing. For over a 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 continue 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: 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 humorous and heartfelt contemporary novels, horror, and historical fiction for middle grade and adult audiences. She is also partial to gut-busting romantic comedies. In nonfiction, she loves platform-driven memoir and biography, as well as policy-driven, narrative nonfiction.

Elizabeth is NOT seeking: cozy mysteries, poetry, political thrillers, hard sci-fi, or epic fantasy projects.
