Today I’m chatting with Betsy Amster, literary agent and founder of Betsy Amster Literary Enterprises, a full-service literary agency located in Los Angeles, California.
Before opening the agency, Betsy spent ten years as an editor at Pantheon and Vintage and two years as editorial director of the Globe Pequot Press. She has been described in the Los Angeles Times as “a dogged prospector of…literary talent” and celebrated in a profile in the American Society of Journalists and Authors newsletter for her “no-nonsense style and whimsical sense of humor.” She frequently teaches classes on publishing at UCLA Extension’s Writers Program and participates in panels at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.
