Jacob Moore is the newest member of the team at Zachary Shuster Harmsworth literary agency, and like all new agents, he needs authors.

Jacob Moore was the recipient of the 2008 Aiken Taylor Internship with the Sewanee Review, America’s oldest continuously published literary quarterly. He joined Zachary Shuster Harmsworth in 2012 as an agent in the New York office, where he brings his previous experience as a freelance journalist, editorial director for a PR firm, and in-house editor at ZSH to serve a broad range of projects for a variety of clients.

Jacob is particularly committed to working closely with writers to bring their work to a higher editorial level. He is currently looking for journalists, bloggers, academics, Sci Fi/Fantasy writers, playwrights, and memoirists contemplating relevant social and philosophical issues in new and creative ways.
