Annie Hwang / Folio Literary Management

HwaCropANNIE HWANG is an agent at Folio Literary Management. She represents a range of fiction for adults and select nonfiction projects. She gravitates towards literary fiction with commercial appeal, and feels particularly drawn to braided narratives and layered plots, especially when populated by complex characters with deep emotional resonance. Commercially, she’s looking for both upmarket historical fiction and visceral literary thrillers that depart from the norm of the genre. The most important thing to her, beyond concept or pitch, is breathtaking storytelling that stretches its genre to new heights. A California native, Annie worked in journalism before making the transition to the publishing world, where she digs for stories that keep her reading late into the night and stay with her long after she puts them down.
