New Literary Agent Alert: Hannah Bowman of Liza Dawson Associates

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Hannah Bowman of Liza Dawson Associates) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

 

About Hannah: She joined Liza Dawson Associates in 2011. Hannah has a B.A. from Cornell University, summa cum laude in English and magna cum laude in Mathematics. While a student, she spent four summers working in particle physics at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, before eventually deciding her true interest was books. Before joining Liza Dawson Associates, Hannah interned briefly with agent Weronika Janczuk, now of Lynn C. Franklin Associates. In her free time, she writes her own fiction (mostly science fiction and fantasy) and plays the organ.
