An Interview With Literary Agent Annie Hwang

by Greg Stewart

Annie Hwang’s story of becoming a literary agent is proof that adaptability pays off in the ever-changing field of publishing. She prioritizes growth, both in her clients and herself. According to Annie, the primary role of an agent is one based on connections. She connects with ​all sorts of ​people across the publishing industry in order to get a manuscript sold. Coming from a background in journalism, Hwang brings a deadline-oriented sensibility and a keen editorial eye to the job. And she’s right there with her client every step of the way, from manuscript draft to finished book, and beyond. Annie is particularly passionate about connecting with underrepresented voices who challenge stereotypes and expand worldviews. You can find her at several conferences this year, including the SLICE Literary Writers’ Conference in September. ​Find out more about her in this latest interview in the Encounters in Publishing series.
