Maggie Cooper

Maggie is a literary 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. 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.

Maggie is actively seeking adult literary and book club fiction, vacation 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. As an agent, she hopes to serve less as a gatekeeper and more as a gate-opener, and is passionate about working with emerging Asian women writers as they navigate the publishing process from writing to querying to placing their work.  

Maggie is available for consultation or submission assessment.
