The Riggs Agency was founded in 2015 by Maggie Riggs. Maggie has worked as an editor at Viking, an associate agent at The Friedrich Agency, and as an independent editor with NY Book Editors.
We are a boutique agency that specializes in literary fiction. We take on select non-fiction projects including creative non-fiction, essay collections, and memoir. 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.
We are particularly interested in works from fiction writers of color, and underrepresented voices of all kinds.
Please note that we do not represent YA, New Adult, middle grade, picture book, or fantasy authors at this time.
The Riggs Agency is proud to be a supporting member of PEN America.
