Before coming to Trident, Martha worked as a literary assistant in subsidiary rights at ICM Partners, helping to sell audiobook and serial rights for all clients at the agency. She came to Trident in 2016 to work as Magazine Rights Associate and Executive Assistant to Ellen Levine, and was promoted to Associate Agent in 2019. At Trident, she loves placing short stories, book excerpts, articles, and essays with magazines and literary journals on behalf of Ellen’s clients and also selling audiobook rights to their work. Martha is now co-agenting select titles with Ellen and is working to build a client list of her own. She is seeking primarily literary fiction, in addition to upmarket commercial fiction and thrillers (psychological and domestic). She is also interested in representing select narrative nonfiction, memoir, and humor projects. You can follow her on Twitter @mlwyd.
