What a nice thorough profile. Thanks for posting. I'm on my way over to the site to check out more.

Hi, Casey. Thanks for this Spotlight. It always surprises me to see an agent who refuses to consider at e-queries.

Matthew MacNish said...

Wow. I don't suppose you could go wrong with a Pulitzer in your name.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I know Shutta Crum, one of Liza's clients. Plus she's looking for middle grade fantasy so I'm definitely adding her to my list of agents. Thanks for the spotlight.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Thanks for introducing us to Ms. Pulitzer-Voges. Great spotlight. :D

Lydia Kang said...

It's so wonderful that you do these profiles. I never got a chance to thank you for doing one for my agent, Eric Myers. It was so helpful!

Liza seems great!

TerryLynnJohnson said...

thanks for this, natalie. Another wonderful author spotlight.

Kim Van Sickler said...

Hmmm. Let's see, I'm looking for an agent...and I have an MG middle grade fantasy I'm looking to peddle. Thanks for the tip!

Unknown said...

Their website now says e-mail only. Maybe I am looking at the wrong thing?

Casey McCormick said...


No, you're correct. It's e-mail only now. Her profile is overdue for an update - I'll try to get to it soon!

Lucy R said...

I was just at a conference with her last weekend. The current contact for queries/submissions is submissions@edenstreetlit.com . BTW, thanks Casey for having this awesome, resourceful blog : )
