MAGGIE COOPER

A white cis woman in her thirties, with long brown hair, freckles, and a black and white collared shirt.

Maggie Cooper is an agent with Aevitas Creative Management, representing adult fiction and select nonfiction projects. Based in Boston, Maggie joined Aevitas in 2018. She holds a degree in English from Yale University, attended the Clarion Writers Workshop, and earned her MFA in fiction from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she served as an editor for The Greensboro Review. Prior to becoming an agent, she worked in the world of independent and university presses, as a bookseller, and as a teacher to students ages 10 through 85. Maggie is actively seeking adult literary and book club fiction, beach reads and romance, creative nonfiction, and select reported and prescriptive nonfiction projects, with an emphasis on queer voices, non-white perspectives, and writers from communities traditionally not centered by mainstream publishing. She loves imaginative writing, language that makes the reader pause over its peculiar specificity, and books that embody a sense of humor, tenderness, or joy.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

Adult literary and book club fiction, beach reads and romance, creative nonfiction, and select reported and prescriptive nonfiction projects, with an emphasis on queer voices, non-white perspectives, and writers from communities traditionally not centered by mainstream publishing.
