Margaret Danko / Irene Goodman Literary Agency

Originally from the heart of the south, Margaret Danko received her BA from Oberlin College before continuing on to pursue an MFA from Temple University. While there, she climbed the ranks to become an editor of TINGE Magazine, publishing fiction, essays, and poetry. She has worked as a freelance editor and media consultant on projects with a variety of authors and publishers, including assisting Kim Perel of Paper Over Board at the Irene Goodman Literary Agency. She is now building her own list with Paper Over Board at IGLA. A lover of the dark, the quirky, and the fantastical, Margaret has a keen eye for projects that take unexpected turns or are told from unusual perspectives.

Margaret believes that all books, whether on an emotional level or through a physical call to action, should move their readers, and she is passionate about empowering authors to find the voice and the story that will engage and inspire each and every person who picks up their books.
