Speilburg Literary Agency

Eva Scalzo joined Speilburg Literary Agency in 2013 and began accepting clients in November 2017. She was born in New Jersey to Puerto Rican parents, and has lived in Houston, Buenos Aires, San Juan, and Boston before settling down outside of Binghamton, New York. She has a B.A. in the Humanities from the University of Puerto Rico and a M.A. in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College. Since graduating in 2002, she has spent her career in scholarly publishing, working for Houghton Mifflin, Blackwell Publishing, John Wiley & Sons, and Cornell University in a variety of roles. Eva has a strong interest in diverse voices and represents authors of Romance, Science Fiction/Fantasy, and Young Adult fiction.

​Eva is currently seeking:

+#OwnVoices #Latinx stories please! Especially from authors of Puerto Rican, Dominican or Cuban descent. I want to see my culture represented in the books I read, but I also just want to promote authors whose voices and stories can reflect the diversity in our world, a diversity that is still lacking in publishing.

+Beyond #Latinx voices, I want to see multicultural, diverse fiction. #OwnVoices for people of all cultures, races, ethnicities. I am committed to making sure underrepresented voices have a seat at the table.

+#LGBTQ stories of all flavors, but especially f/f and bi/pan/demi/ace. I’d also love to see trans characters written by trans voices.

+In either Romance/YA, I really want to see a summer/vacation story. It can be at the beach or by the lake, or while on travel in an exotic city. I want to see a story about falling in love and figuring out what happens when summer/vacation ends and going back to “real life” means having to make difficult choices.
