Maggie Riggs is the founder of The Riggs Agency, a boutique agency that specializes in literary fiction, as well as select non-fiction projects including creative non-fiction and essays. Maggie is drawn to manuscripts that are inventive, and push boundaries–of form, genre, culture, and beyond. She especially appreciates voice-driven work in both fiction and non-fiction, as well as writers working from a feminist bent. She is particularly interested in works from fiction writers of color, and underrepresented voices of all kinds. Maggie has worked as an editor at Viking, an associate agent at The Friedrich Agency, and as an independent editor with NY Book Editors.
