Eve MacSweeney is a Principal Agent with Calligraph, a full-service literary agency with offices in New York and Boston.

Eve MacSweeney moved into agenting after an extensive career as a journalist and editor, most recently as Features Director of Vogue, where she worked for 17 years. There she assigned writers including Elizabeth Rubin, Edmund White, Lena Dunham, Hilton Als, Sally Rooney, and Rachel Kushner, and edited several books, among them Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington and Nostalgia in Vogue, featuring essays by James Salter, Kennedy Fraser, Patti Smith, Joan Didion, and Lydia Davis.

Eve joined Calligraph after four years at Fletcher & Company, where her projects included memoirs focused on the criminal justice system, three novels by the author Jane L. Rosen, a science-based investigation into human aptitudes, and a biography of Gala Dalí. 


“Bringing her editorial experience and close working relationships with writers to the field, Eve is developing narrative non-fiction and literary fiction titles that speak to her interest in emotionally driven stories, singular voices, and compelling social issues, particularly as they concern the lives of women.”
