Maggie Rosenthal, Editor

Maggie Rosenthal is an Editor at Viking, which she joined in 2014 with a certificate from the Columbia Publishing Course. After graduating as a Phi Beta Kappa from Kenyon College with a degree in Anthropology and a minor in English, she moved back to her hometown of New York City. She works on books for kids of all ages, from board books through YA, as well as graphic novels, with an emphasis on middle grade and YA. While she considers herself genre agnostic, books that provide fresh angles into familiar stories, explore family relationships to cultural traditions, center LGBTQ+ romance, or are tinged with horror are her kryptonite. She’s always looking for projects by marginalized creators across all genres and for all reading levels. When she’s not editing, you can find her baking bread and listening to podcasts—or organizing her oversized collection of clogs.
