Monika Woods is a literary agent with Curtis Brown. She began her publishing career working for Ellen Levine at Trident Media Group after graduating from the Columbia Publishing Course. Her interests include literary and commercial fiction, and compelling non-fiction in food, popular culture, science, and current affairs. Some of her dream projects include historical fiction about feminists, darkly suspenseful stories (both true and made-up) with unreliable narrators, anything about Poland and its history, nonfiction that is creatively critical, and above all, novels written in a singular voice. Monika lives in Brooklyn with her husband, son, and two cats and can be found writing about the book she just finished at www.booksijustread.com or @booksijustread.
