I’m YA: I would love to see stories from BIPOC creators that explores culture through things like music or food or art. The way those things can connect us to culture and also cross cultural barriers is a relatable way to explore identity, especially in the YA space. #mswl

In YA: I’m listening to Red (Taylor’s version) on repeat—my “All Too Well” ask in the Romance section might have given me away—but a story inspired by “Everything Has Changed” would be right up my alley. Bonus points if it’s set during summer vacation. #mswl

In YA: Gothic or horror as long as it’s not too gory. I especially love atmospheric settings and psychological horror/suspense. #MSWL 5/7

On my eternal #mswl is a romcom (YA or Adult) where one of the MCs is a Type I diabetic.

This request brought to you by the fact that my new insurance requires prior authorization on the insulin that I’ve been using for over 20 years. So now I get to pay more to stay alive.

Eva Scalzo 🇵🇷 @evascalzo

Hi #amquerying friends! I have officially fully re-opened to queries. I'll thread a couple of #mswl related tweets, but I'm so excited to see your projects in my inbox, which can be found at this handy link: QueryManager.com/evascalzo 1/

Reminder: I represent Adult Romance and SFF and across all genres of Young Adult fiction. I do not represent literary fiction, poetry, screenplays, or nonfiction—not even narrative nonfiction or whatever autofiction is (something I've seen recently in queries). #mswl 2/

I know summer is over (sob!) but I'm still looking for that summer vacation love story. It could take place at the beach or lake or in an exotic city, but I want something where there are real stakes involved with what happens when summer ends. (YA/Adult)

I'd also love to see some #Caribbean/#Latinx post-Hurricane Irma/Maria stories, stories that tackle the issues head-on but in a hopeful way, with a romance or personal growth for the main characters. Also YA or Adult.

Ok, now the good stuff:

Give me all the #Latinx stories. But a specific one I'd really like to see is one set in PR during the governor protests in OSJ, I'm thinking enemies-to-lovers. Could be YA or Adult.

5. It's April and it's still freezing in Upstate NY, so I want to see your #SummerLoving romances in both #YA and #Adult. Set at the beach, at the lake, in an exotic city, I want to see those stories that find two people struggling against what happens when summer ends. #MSWL

2. In #YA #SFF I'd like to see ensemble pieces with diverse representation. #LGBTQ & #POC in particular. Want to see comps like FOUR DEAD QUEENS/EMBER IN THE ASHES/RED QUEEN /Lunar Chronicles #MSWL

1. As a #Latinx literary agent, I want to represent more #Latinx voices—especially Puerto Rican, Cuban and Dominican voices. I represent most subgenres of #romance and #YA and want to see stories with these voices publish and thrive. #MSWL

Replying to @s700com

Hi Robert, my #MSWL hasn’t changed, I’m still looking at all romance except inspirational and YA except historical. Queries should be sent to speilburgliterary@gmail.com with my name in the subject line and first 3 chapters pasted in email.
