Stephanie Kip Rostan ’95

Stephanie Kip Rostan has been a literary agent since 2001, becoming a partner at Levine Greenberg Rostan in 2014.  Her first job after college was as the assistant to a romance editor at Bantam Dell, where she made a disorienting transition from her life as an English/Creative Writing major at Princeton to the world of commercial publishing — and never went back.  She now represents primarily fiction, including New York Times bestsellers Gillian Flynn, Lisa Lutz and Bryan Reardon, as well as actor, comedian and children’s book author Thomas Lennon.  In nonfiction, she has been drawn to projects that solve a problem or make us see things in a new way, working with the La Leche League (The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, revised edition), Amir Levine and Rachel Heller (Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment) and Chris Santella (50 Places series). Raised in Andover, Massachusetts, Stephanie is the daughter of a Latin and Greek teacher whose specialty is etymology (ask her dad for a definition and you’ll get a minimum of 36 hours of explanation). Rostan now lives with her husband and two children in the New York City area, where she serves as president of the board at Mile Square Theatre and is committed to raising her kids as Red Sox fans despite the hostile environs.
