Roz Foster joined the Frances Goldin Literary Agency in 2019. Previously, she spent
over six years as a literary agent with the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.
Roz specializes in serious nonfiction in the areas of history, politics and current affairs. She’s also interested in technology, science, design and memoir. She’s passionate about books illuminating the roots of persistent national and international troubles that offer insight toward solution. She looks for accessible, driven storytelling from expert authors whose big, bold ideas shift us from one way of thinking to another. She’s also interested in adult literary and commercial fiction, including contemporary, historical and multicultural. She’d love to represent more upmarket historical fantasy and spec-fic/sci-fi on the literary side with a strong, feminist lean.
