Triangle House describes itself as a literary community. It is literary agency and the publisher of a literary blog and The Triangle House Review, a literary journal. The review and blog are currently closed for submissions, unless you’ve never been published before in any capacity. In which case, check out the Triangle House Review here, and if it looks like your kind of place, email your submission to: becca@triangle.house

Triangle House Literary has only been around since 2019, so all three agents are new, and like all new agents, they're in need of authors:

Monika Woods is a literary agent, writer, editor, and founder of Triangle House. She lives in Brooklyn and Springs, NY, with her husband and son.  She is a graduate of SUNY Buffalo and the Columbia Publishing Course and has worked closely with leading voices in contemporary literature over her decade-long publishing career. 

Monika is looking for literary fiction. She’s particularly excited about plot-driven literary novels.

Monika is also seeking compelling nonfiction in cultural criticism, food, popular culture, journalism, science, and current affairs.  She likes writing that is creatively critical or gives a unique perspective. She’d love a great cookbook.

Above all, she’s looking for original prose.

Query Monika at: monika@triangle.house

Include a description of your project and the first ten pages. 

Renée Jarvis was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from Brooklyn College with a BFA in Creative Writing and previously worked as an assistant and agent at MacKenzie Wolf Literary.

Renée is seeking fiction for adults and children and narrative nonfiction. She is looking for works that centre POC and LGB+ voices and is particularly drawn to the work of Black writers.

In fiction, she loves robust plots, bold characters with a sense of humor, unique formats, stories that explore friendship and family, and lyrical prose.

In nonfiction, she is interested in pop culture analysis, cultural histories, linguistics, food writing, international stories, and explorations of music fashion, and art.

Query Renée through this form

Include a synopsis and the first 30 pages of your novel or full book proposal for nonfiction.

Kima Jones joined Triangle House Literary in 2021. She is also the founder of: Jack Jones Literary Arts, an LA-based publicity agency for black and brown writers, Jack Jones Literary Arts Retreat for black and brown nonbinary and women writers; and Culture, Too, a mentorship conference for black and brown cultural critics.

Kima is interested in representing literary and commercial fiction, speculative fictions, science fiction, and horror.

In nonfiction she's looking for essay collections and memoir.

She's also interested in hybrid texts and poetry.

Query Kima through her query manager here.
