Michael Larsen - Elizabeth Pomada Literary Agents is Northern California's oldest literary agency, helping writers launch careers since 1972. Michael and Elizabeth are also the co-founders of the San Francisco Writers Conference and the Writing for Change Conference.

Kat Salazar is the agency's newest associate agent, representing children's picture books, easy readers, chapter books, middle-grade, and young adult books. For adult audiences she is interested in both fiction and non-fiction.

Kat joined Larsen-Pomada in February 2011 as an intern for the agency, working directly for agency co-founder Elizabeth Pomada. Previously she worked for University of Washington Press as a Marketing Assistant and held internships at University of California Press, HarperOne of Harper Collins, and Wales Literary Agency. Besides her position as an associate agent, Kat is also the Publishing Assistant at Red Wheel/Weiser/Conari Press and the Social Media Director for the San Francisco Writers. For more about Kat you can follow her on Twitter at @KatLovesBooks or read her blog:

Lindsey Clemons is also fairly new to the agency and is actively looking for clients. She wants thrillers, mysteries of all sorts and literary fiction. She is an advocate for strong, well-developed characters and fresh, distinct voices. Query Lindsey with the first ten pages of your manuscript and a 1-2-page synopsis via email (no attachments) at:

Laurie McLean joined the agency in 2005 to represent adult genre fiction and children's middle-grade and young adult books. At this time, she is only considering middle grade and young adult children's fiction queries, as well as adult fantasy and science fiction queries. This may change over time, so please check back occasionally. Query Laurie with the first ten pages and a 2-page plot synopsis of a manuscript via email (no attachments, please) at her new email address:

Michael Larsen, one of the agency’s founders, still accepts new clients. He’s eager to find nonfiction books that will excite big and midsize houses: how-to’s, self-help, business, personal finance, popular culture, biography, current affairs, history, health, medicine, spirituality, inspirational books, trends, technology, the future, and other books with practical, social, or literary value. Submit a nonfiction proposal or query to Michael Larsen by mail.

Elizabeth Pomada represents narrative nonfiction (memoir), adult commercial and literary fiction, women's fiction, romance, thrillers and mysteries. She loves to find promising new writers who are writing books that will interest New York publishers. The site doesn’t provide instructions on submitting to her, and presumably she’s not looking for clients.
