Trident Media Group is one of the largest and most diversified agencies in the world. Trident represents over 1,000 authors in a range of genres of fiction and nonfiction, many of whom have appeared on the New York Times Best Sellers Lists and have won major awards and prizes. For more than six consecutive years, Publishers Market Place ranked Trident number one for sales in North America. But Trident doesn’t just work with bestselling authors; it also takes on emerging authors.
The newest member of the team is Martha Wydysh. Martha is now co-agenting select titles with Executive Vice President of Trident Ellen Levine and is working to begin a client list of her own.

As an undergraduate, she spent a year at St. Anne’s College, Oxford University, studying British literature and creative writing and was a staff writer for the Cornell Daily Sun’s Arts & Entertainment section.
Before coming to Trident, Martha worked as a literary assistant in subsidiary rights at a major agency, selling 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 Magazine/Audio Rights Associate, Co-Agent, and Executive Assistant 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. She has placed work by Ellen Levine’s renowned clients with The Paris Review, McSweeney’s Quarterly ConcernThe New YorkerHarper’s MagazineThe NationThe New RepublicNew York Review of Books, the New York Times Book ReviewPlayboy, n+1, GuernicaNew York Magazine’s The Cut, Tin House and The Believer.
