MAGGIE COOPER

A 30-something white woman with freckles and long brown hair, wearing a collared black and white shirt.

Maggie Cooper has been an agent with Aevitas Creative Management since 2018, representing fiction and select nonfiction animated by imagination, empathy, and joy. Based in Boston, 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.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

I am actively seeking genre-bending literary fiction; beautifully told queer stories; and smart, feminist vacation reads. My other passions include unclassifiable book projects, books about food and cooking, and well earned happy endings—particularly for characters underrepresented in mainstream publishing. Across the board, I hope to represent projects that make our world weirder, kinder, more joyful, or all three.
