Elizabeth Fisher

Rights Director

After spending her childhood, adolescence, and college years in the Garden State, Beth set her sights on the Big Apple. Alternating her nights between waitressing at an Irish Pub in NJ and studying at the NYU Publishing Program, she soon began working with a New York literary agency before moving to NYC and joining Simon & Schuster’s subsidiary rights department.  Because she missed working with authors and the creative side of publishing, Beth rejoined the agency side and came to the agency in 2004 to help build their foreign rights department. 

A chronic sufferer of wanderlust and daydreams, Beth has been drawn to living out a myriad of lives. She holds degrees from Fairleigh Dickinson University in English Literature, Theater Arts, and Women’s Studies. She has worked in a Great Swamp, lived in an English abbey, and climbed a volcano in Ecuador during a blizzard at 3am—all with a book forever in her hand.
