Annie Hwang

Before joining Ayesha Pande Literary, Annie began her career at Folio Literary Management where she had the pleasure of working with debut and seasoned authors alike. As a former journalist, Annie possesses a keen editorial eye which she brings to her approach to agenting, taking an active role in the careers of her clients. Annie represents voice-driven literary fiction and select nonfiction. In particular, she gravitates toward subversive, genre-inflected literary fiction and impactful mission-driven narrative nonfiction that explores and grapples with the complexities of our world. A fierce champion for underrepresented voices, Annie is always on the hunt for gifted storytelling that stretches its genre to new heights.

What I'm looking For

  • literary fiction with a hint of genre or that plays with genre
  • dark, subversive literary thrillers that can make you hold your breath
  • rich, sweeping historical fiction in which the setting takes on a life of its own
  • nuanced speculative fiction that grapples with contemporary issues
  • narrative nonfiction that reads like a novel and deals with a traditionally underrepresented culture
