The Ross Yoon Literary Agency specializes in serious nonfiction on a variety of topics: everything from memoir and history and biography to popular science, business, and psychology. Their clients include CEOs, top doctors, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, academics, politicos, and radio and television personalities.

Katie Zanecchia has joined the Ross Yoon Agency as a literary agent, and like all new agents, she needs authors.

Katie 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 New York City 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.

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, memoir, or pop culture.
