Abigail Koons
Park Literary & Media

The Park Literary Group was founded in January 2005, when Theresa Park and several colleagues left the venerable literary agency, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. A full-service literary agency, The Park Literary Group represents fiction and nonfiction with a boutique approach: an emphasis on servicing a relatively small number of clients, with the highest professional standards and focused personal attention. With a robust foreign rights department, a strong emphasis on broad-based marketing and client promotions, and deep relationships with film and television entities in Los Angeles, the agency brings to bear top-tier resources and a wealth of experience in managing all aspects of an author's career. Abigail works with both emerging and established talent, representing projects about popular science, history, politics, current affairs and art. She also has a passion for plot-driven commercial fiction.
