Michelle Brower

2023 Guest Literary Agent, Trellis Literary Management

Michelle is a Founding Partner and Literary Agent at Trellis Literary Management. With more than fifteen years as an agent, her list spans the spectrum of literary and commercial fiction, from thought-provoking story collections to page-turning thrillers. She is primarily interested in work that focuses on storytelling and emotional connection, and believes that the best reading experience engages both the heart and the head. She is looking for book club novels (a commercial idea with a literary execution), literary fiction, literary suspense, genre fiction for a non-genre audience, and upmarket women’s fiction. In all of these areas, she is looking to support underrepresented voices. Michelle received her Masters degree in British and American Literature from New York University. Originally from New Jersey, she now lives in Seattle with her family.
