Claire Harris / Foundry Literary + Media

Claire Harris joined the Foundry Literary + Media team after completing the NYU Summer Publishing Course in 2015. While she graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in English, she’s originally from Wisconsin and will always be a Midwesterner at heart. She’s primarily interested in fiction, specifically in literary psychological thrillers, commercial thrillers, detective series, fictional works inspired by actual crimes, mystery and suspense, and anything involving serial killers. She’s looking for new voices, unique styles of writing, and plots that are anything but ordinary. She’s a lover of all things dark and twisted, and is always happy to read manuscripts with unexpected endings.
