Adria Goetz is a Senior Literary Agent with P.S. Literary Agency. She accepts queries for picture books, middle grade, adult fiction, graphic novels, as well as quirky gift books and Christian devotionals.
Adria is a 2016 graduate of the Columbia Publishing Course in New York City, a six-week intensive course on all aspects of book, magazine, and digital media publishing. She is also a graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle with a B.A. in English with a creative writing emphasis. Adria also worked for Washington’s Pierce County Library System for two years. In 2019, she was selected as a Publishers Weekly Star Watch Honoree.
Her mission statement says: “I look for books that delight readers, that comfort readers, that help readers escape for a while when they need to, that help inspire wonder and imagination, that foster deep empathy and compassion for our fellow human beings, that provide rich character representation of marginalized people groups, that take the reader on an adventure, that uncover fascinating stories from history’s footnotes, that make people laugh or cry or jump from fright, stories that explore the female experience, that ask nitty gritty questions and don’t settle for easy answers, that make people disappointed when they have to close the book and go to bed, and books that add a touch of magic to readers’ lives.“
Adria lives in an old Victorian home in the Seattle area (which she hopes dearly is haunted with a few friendly ghosts) with her husband Alex and their two darling kittens, Maple and Mulberry.
