Ross Yoon’s literary agent in New York City, Katie is interested in narrative non-fiction that catalyzes social change, challenges the status quo, gives voice to the underrepresented, and inspires improvement of all kinds — whether it’s through the lens of women’s rights and feminism, arts and design, technology, politics, social science, graphic history, memoir, or pop culture.
She has worked at the intersection of content, creativity, and advocacy for her entire career — from literary magazines and major publishers to arts-based non-profits. She began her career at Writers House Literary Agency, where she also helped create their first digital rights department. Recently, she’s helped build and celebrate creative communities at CreativeMornings and Girls Write Now, where she’s experienced the transformative power of the written word first hand.
A native Coloradan, she comes to NYC by way of DC and Charlottesville, with some quick detours in Taos, Lima and London. She graduated from the Columbia Publishing Course and has a BA in Comparative Literature from the University of Virginia. You can find her @klz4k just about everywhere on the internet.
