KIANA NGUYEN

After dropping out of University of Albany in 2015, Kiki Nguyen had her first publishing internship with Wunderkind PR. There, she discovered a practical industry for her codependent love of fiction. In 2016, Kiki went on to intern with DMLA where she soon joined the team full-time as an assistant literary agent.

Kiki is now building her client list within young adult and adult fiction with a focus on queer and BIPOC authors. When not working, she is playing Among Us or shouting about film/tv on Twitter.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

As a queer woman of color, I am specifically interested in queer and BIPOC stories. Across all areas of interest, I crave emotionally immersive, voice-y, character-driven projects that make “small stakes” seem big. I am particularly focused in acquiring contemporary YA and Adult horror, at the moment.
