Get to Know an Editor in Attendance: Lizzie Poteet of Harper Muse

Lizzie Poteet is an acquisitions editor with Harper Muse. She was formerly an agent at The Seymour Agency.

After several years at St Martin’s Press/Macmillan working as an editor, she made the move out of NYC and editorial and to Nashville and agenting. Now she is an editor again.

She is seeking: “I am actively acquiring in the Women’s Fiction, Historical Fiction, and Southern Fiction spaces with some openness to inspirational fiction as well.”

A hopeless romantic, she’s eternally grateful she found a way to channel her immense feelings about feelings into a legitimate job where swooning is considered a job skill. A spitfire from an early age, she once tried to write a series of book reports in high school on Nora Roberts, Linda Howard, and Julie Garwood. It did not go over well. Lizzie’s addiction to romance only grew from there, which explains why she decided to study abroad at the University of St. Andrews in college. Just on the off chance she would fall back in time and meet her own warrior soul mate. Sadly, she didn’t and now lives in a yellow cottage with green shutters with her dogs, Mr. Darcy and Miss Dashwood, where she watches a lot of TV. You can follow her on Twitter @lizziepoteet
