Sarah Bowlin

Sarah Bowlin is an agent at Aevitas Creative Management.  Before becoming an agent, she spent nearly a decade as an editor of literary fiction and nonfiction, first at Riverhead Books and most recently at Henry Holt & Company. She has worked with many acclaimed writers including Juan Gabriel Vásquez, Sheila Heti, Salvatore Scibona, Helen Phillips, Kseniya Melnik, Luvvie Ajayi, Ramona Ausubel, Gabriel Urza, Rachel Khong, and Julie Buntin. As an agent, she represents emerging writers Souvankham Thammavongsa, Halimah Marcus, and Kevin Nguyen, among others. Based in Los Angeles but originally from the South, Sarah is interested in great writing and bold voices—specifically stories of strong or difficult women and unexpected narratives of place, identity, and the shifting ways we see ourselves and each other.
