Annie Hwang

Originally from Los Angeles, Annie represents literary fiction and select nonfiction. As a former journalist, she possesses a keen editorial eye which she brings to her approach to agenting, taking an active role in helping clients reach their full potential and guiding them through every stage of their writing career from ideation to publication and beyond. Since joining Folio Literary Management she’s had the pleasure of working with both debut and seasoned authors alike.

Annie is actively building her list and gravitates toward literary fiction featuring diverse characters and authentic voices; rich historical fiction where the setting takes on a life of its own; visceral literary thrillers with dark psychological grit; and nuanced speculative fiction that explores what it means to be human in the age of technology. She loves to champion underrepresented voices and is particularly drawn to complex characters with emotional resonance, deftly braided narratives, and captivating layered plots. When it comes to nonfiction, she is open to fresh, smart, well-branded nonfiction in the areas of pop science, pop culture, diet, health, fitness, food, lifestyle, and humor. Above all, she is always on the hunt for gifted storytelling that stretches its genre to new heights.
