Harold Schmidt Literary Agency

After graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Cinema, I moved to New York City and became an assistant in the Play Department at International Creative Management. I moved over to the Literary Department there headed by Lynn Nesbit before going over to William Morris Agency's Literary Department. In the mid-80s I founded my own literary agency, Harold Schmidt Literary Agency.
